STORAGE ADVICE To maintain the freshness and quality of Pigs Tails, it is recommended to store them in the refrigerator at a temperature of 32°F to 40°F (0°C to 4°C). Place the tails in an airtight container or wrap them tightly in plastic wrap to prevent any exposure to air or odors. Stored correctly, Pigs Tails can maintain their freshness for up to 2-3 days. If you plan to store them for a longer period, you can also freeze the tails. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil or place them in a freezer-safe bag or container. Frozen Pigs Tails can retain their quality for approximately 2-3 months. When ready to use, thaw the tails in the refrigerator before cooking.
PACKAGING This pack contains 1 piece.
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.


Here’s cooking instruction for preparing pig’s tail:

1. Preparation: Start by cleaning the pig’s tail thoroughly under running water. Remove any excess hair or debris and pat it dry with a paper towel.
2. Boiling: Fill a large pot with enough water to fully submerge the pig’s tail. Add a pinch of salt and bring the water to a boil. Once boiling, carefully place the pig’s tail into the pot and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. This step helps to remove any impurities and partially cook the tail.
3. Seasoning: Drain the water from the pot and rinse the pig’s tail. Now, it’s time to season it. You can use a combination of your favorite spices and herbs. Some common options include garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, black pepper, and thyme. Generously sprinkle the seasoning over the pig’s tail, making sure to coat it evenly.
4. Slow cooking: Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Place the seasoned pig’s tail in a baking dish or roasting pan, and cover it tightly with aluminum foil or a lid. Slow cook the tail in the oven for approximately 2 to 3 hours or until the meat is tender and easily pulls away from the bone.
5. Glazing (optional): If desired, you can add a glaze to enhance the flavor of the pig’s tail. About 15 minutes before the cooking time is up, remove the foil or lid and brush the tail with your preferred glaze. Some popular options include barbecue sauce, honey mustard, or a sweet and tangy marinade. Return the dish to the oven, uncovered, and continue cooking until the glaze caramelizes slightly.
6. Serving: Once the pig’s tail is cooked to perfection, remove it from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Serve it as a main dish or as a flavorful addition to stews, soups, or rice dishes. Garnish with fresh herbs, if desired.

Remember to exercise caution when handling hot dishes and use oven mitts or pot holders to protect yourself. Enjoy your deliciously cooked pig’s tail!
