New Zealand Free-Range Lamb Sweetbreads (450g)



A small pack 450g (1lbs) of lamb sweetbreads. There are more than a dozen sweetbread nuggets in one pack. The finest New Zealand quality - you will notice that there is no unpleasant odor. Sweetbreads are offal meat and come from the thymus gland and pancreas. Also known as "ris d'agneau". Whenever meat has fancy French names you know you'll find it in fancy restaurants. This is true for the lamb sweetbread. Sweetbreads are considered a delicatessen. The texture is very smooth, tender, and moist, and the flavor is quite mild and creamy. The outside crisps up easily, and they go well with both rich and more acidic sauces. If you’ve never had sweetbreads before, give them a try. 

Using the whole animal is a practice that is still common in many countries around the world and is gaining momentum within the (health) conscious carnivore community. We at Horizon Farms we strongly believe in the whole animal butchery where less sought-after parts are also offered so nothing goes to waste. Usually - due to their low market price value, offals and less sought after cuts are sold domestically within the export country, and seldomly make it into export. 

New Zealand lamb is internationally known for its superior quality and taste. Our New Zealand lamb takes it one step further: All year free-range open pasture-raised, grass-fed lambs. Free of growth-promoting hormones and subtherapeutic use of antibiotics. This is the finest lamb available. If you have never tried lamb or had a bad experience with lamb in the past we urge you to give New Zealand premium quality lamb a try. Our lamb comes from family-owned and operated farms and ranches in New Zealand only. Ethical raising has always been the cultural tradition in New Zealand.
