STORAGE ADVICE To ensure the longevity and quality of the Salted Whole Tongue, proper storage is key. It is recommended to store the tongue in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. If the tongue comes in a vacuum-sealed package, you can keep it in the refrigerator at a temperature below 40°F (4°C). However, if the tongue is not vacuum-sealed, it is best to store it in a cool, well-ventilated area, such as a pantry or cellar. Properly stored, the Salted Whole Tongue can maintain its quality for several weeks. Remember to check for any signs of spoilage before consuming and follow any additional storage instructions provided on the packaging.
PACKAGING This pack contains 1kg.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.


Cooking instructions:


  • lamb’s tongue, ox tongue, pig tongue or veal tongue
  • onion, peeled and quartered
  • carrot, washed and roughly chopped
  • garlic cloves, bashed
  • 1 bunch of thyme
  • 1 tsp black peppercorns
  • butter, for frying
  • salt, to taste
1. Scrub the tongue under cold water, then place in a large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, skimming off the scum that rises to the surface
2. Once the water is boiling, add your aromatics; in this case, onions, carrots, garlic, thyme and peppercorns (but feel free to experiment with other ingredients for a different flavour). Continue to boil until tender – a knife should easily pierce the thickest part of it. This takes about 3 hours for ox, pig and veal tongue, or 1–1.5 hours for lamb and smaller tongues. Once cooked, it will have turned white and the top of the tongue will start to blister
3. Remove the tongue from the liquor, and when cool enough to handle peel off and discard the rubbery skin. Make sure you do this whilst still warm as it’s near impossible to do cold. Remove the rough, bony end of the tongue and discard
4. At this stage, the tongue can be pressed with a little of the cooking liquor and some gelatine, left in the fridge overnight, then thinly sliced for sandwiches. Or, due to its rich, fatty texture, dice it up and fry in butter until crispy for a luxurious melt-in-the-mouth finish
