Thursday Tips



Here’s what to look for when have the meat in front of you:

1. Red meat like lamb should be bright red- that means it’s the freshest. If it turns a bit purple, it’s still ok but means it’s been exposed to some oxygen.

2. Press the meat firmly with your finger- if it springs back nicely, it is fresh; if not, it is most likely old because it is losing its firmness.

3. Smell the meat– always. It shouldn’t smell like anything, really. Lamb has more of a gamey or wild animal smell, which is normal but meat should never smell like bleach, ammonia or anything foul. If you don’t smell it up close, chances are you may not even notice anything unusual.
