Faggots x 2

£4.00

Faggots play a significant role in the gastronomic history of Britain. They are a traditional, cheap source of tasty nutrition. They were first eaten in the West Midlands and Wiltshire, before becoming very popular in Wales, where they remain something of a staple. People in the north of England sometimes refer to them as ‘ducks’.  Faggots are made from pork offal, smoked fats, ham and herbs and spices. They are rich in flavour and have a lovely texture. Butchers make them to their own, closely guarded recipes.

We suggest wrapping faggots in The Black Farmer middle bacon. Once wrapped, place them on a lightly greased baking paper and bake them in a medium oven for 45 minutes to an hour. While cooking, make mashed potato with a good amount of butter and a bit of grated nutmeg. Reserve some of the juices from cooking. Gently heat through fresh peas in a frying pan with butter, water and the cooking juices. Serve the faggots on top of the mash and pour the peas and juices around the outside.

 

Offal when prepared like this is totally delicious and very good for you. It is a good idea to introduce different cuts into your repertoire, as making the most of each animal is more sustainable for the environment. Faggots are inexpensive and offer great flavour for the cost.

 

The best ingredients deserve the best preparation. That’s why we work with master butchers who have prepared our faggots to the very highest standard. This means they are perfectly seasoned and ready to cook and serve.

 

We work with the best local suppliers. Our highest-quality meat comes from the south west of England.  Traditional farming practices make for happier, healthier pigs and result in a far more delicious product. Add these faggots to your basket and we’re sure you will agree.
