INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 160°C. Sprinkle the venison with a teaspoon of salt and 1 tablespoon baking soda. Let it sit for 15 minutes then rinse and dry (the baking soda will tenderize the venison)
  2. In a food processor, mix the roasted peppers, paprika, tomato paste, caraway, vinegar, and salt until smooth.
  3. Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onions and a pinch of salt. Cook until the onions are soft.
  4. Stir in the paprika/pepper mixture and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Make sure the paprika mixture does not burn or it will become bitter. Stir in the venison, carrots, and bay leaf. Cover the pan and place it in the oven. Cook for 2 to 3 hours.
  5. Remove the bay leaf. Add enough broth to bring to the desired consistency and season with salt and pepper. Serve with roasted potatoes and top with sour cream.

Barclays Report Shines Spotlight On Gazegill

 

To help tackle uncertainty over Brexit, Barclays have launched a report to showcase some of the most diverse rural businesses across the UK which shines a spotlight on how some farmers have diversified to build resilience.

Gazegill Organics is one of five manufacturing or agricultural businesses chosen, and is tiny in comparison to some of the vast estates around the UK. But we must be doing something right!

Barclays press releases says “After seeing a demand for local home-grown produce from consumers hungry to find out more about the origins of their food, Gazegill Organics began selling produce online directly to consumers across the country.

As their farming business grows, Gazegill has also invested in renewable energy sources for the farm, including solar-panels and a turbine, to lower costs.

Emma Robinson, Head of Gazegill Organics, said: “We know Brexit is going to bring both opportunities and challenges over the next few years. At Gazegill Organics we’re responding by really tuning into the domestic demand for locally sourced goods and organic produce.

“We’ve diversified so that we can sell direct to the consumer, and sales of our organic food has tripled in the last year.”

Over a thousand SMEs attended the first 100 clinics to hear about the report and put on by Barclays to help support their banking business customers through Brexit uncertainty.

Our Organic Nitrate Free Christmas Hams sell out quickly,

order now to avoid disappointment!

Our Organic Nitrate Free Christmas Hams are dry cured using an old curing recipe found in the farm archives, traditional and nitrate free cured using sea salt and organic molasses.

Most hams today are brine injected producing a rapid cure where a lot of moisture is retained and this is evident during cooking. Our nitrate free home cure uses sea salt and molasses to draw the moisture out, we then wash and hang to dry. This process gives a stunning Organic Nitrate Free Christmas Ham which is how ham should taste.

Our Organic herd of rare breed Oxford Sandy and Black pigs are slow grown and outdoor reared and free to roam our extensive outdoor pig pens (or large straw barns in the wet weather). Our organic pigs can explore natural behavior whilst foraging for goodies, this enhances the flavour of our Nitrate Free Traditional Organic Christmas Ham.

We will include some cooking instructions as our organic ham is best simmered slowly before being roasted.
