Lamb Shanks braised for hours are a real treat. Don't be impatient because this otherwise very tough meat will only transform to succulent delight after hours of slow cooking. They come two to a package.
Enjoy within 5 days or freeze for later use.
Farmers to You orders Tamarack Sheep Farm lamb by the whole animal and it arrives fresh to us every time it's ordered. On weeks when we receive a fresh lamb delivery you will receive cuts that are fresh, not frozen. On weeks when we do not receive a new order your lamb will be sent frozen to stop the aging process. Lamb begins the thawing process while en route to you and can continue the thawing process in your fridge and enjoyed within a week. Tamarack lamb can be refrozen if desired. To thaw meat that has been frozen, place in a sealed bag in a bowl of cool water. Allow at least a day to thaw your lamb prior to cooking. Depending on the size and cut of meat, thawing times may vary. Check the weekly bounty in our Friday Newsletter for fresh lamb updates.
Tamarack's flock dates back to the 1920s and has been tended by the Manchin family since then. These animals are raised on grass and as naturally as possible. We have been looking for a quality lamb producer for some time and we are pleased to partner with Ben and his heirloom flock. He sells his lamb only to us and two restaurants (one in Boston and one in Burlington), so it is a very special treat indeed.
These lamb shanks make the best osso buco we've ever tasted - by far. The flavor was incredible. My entire family raved about them. They aren't always available so grab them while you can!
