Palmdale – In our Freezers

You will know, by now, that Palmdale Village Meats, Poultry and Seafood have a huge range of fabulous, gluten free, nitrate free and in-store made/smoked fresh products.

Sometimes, however, it is best for our customers to provide frozen products.  Maybe because deliveries of certain products are only possible at greater intervals – sometimes they can only be sourced frozen.  Whatever the reason, there are actually quite a large and varied range in our freezers.

From prawns, quick meals, pastries, poultry, broth bones to pet food.  For the full range, read on.

It’s so easy right?  The recipe specifies Pork.  But… what do you get?  There is a huge variety of Pork cuts – and to make it more confusing, we at Palmdale Village Meats have even more treats in store for you – seasoned pork, stuffed fillets etc….

What’s more, Pork isn’t consistent around the (other) shops and supermarkets, giving varying results in your cooking.

THAT is why you come to Palmdale!  We can provide you with a range of high quality, antibiotic and nitrate free, true free range pork all giving you a consistent result.

Whatever your views on Australia Day/Date – it’s become a time for people to celebrate our cultural diversity and has become synonymous with Barbeques and Lamb. Hence our post this week.

Palmdale Turkey selections – and how to cook them

Turkey = Christmas right?  Luckily, Palmdale Village Meats, Poultry and Seafood has a very wide variation of Gluten free, Nitrate Free, Turkey Roasts – from smaller 1 kilo rolled roasts, to large 8 kilo full Turkeys.  Seasoned or not, as per your request!  Gluten free stuffing available!

While Turkey can be a truly delicious meal, it is a very lean meat and can be easily overcooked. Not only is it a leaner meat than you may be used to, but it is generally the only time of the year we are cooking such a large roast – and possibly even the only time this year you’re cooking Turkey.

There are only a certain number available in each size, so it is best to order them. Call in or ring, you don’t need to pick your roast up until you need it, but you do need to order it now (08) 8267 5498

For full range, and taking the mystery out of how to cook them… read on.

Isn’t it nice to know that Palmdale Meats, Poultry and Seafood – that Butcher shop in the North Adelaide Shopping Centre that smells so good {because they smoke all their own smoked products) – has everything in hand and can take some of the pressure off you this Holiday Season.

But don’t be one of those people who rushes around at the last minute. It would be very wise to ring Palmdale Meats on (08) 8267 5498, (or call in), with your order – Seriously, don’t leave it until the last minute, there really ISN’T “enough to go around”, especially if you want the best quality, free range, properly fed, GMO free, Nitrate Free, Gluten Free meats!

Mini Roasts – for 1 or 2 people

If you love your roasts, you will certainly have your favourite!  Maybe it’s a lovely Chicken Roast with all the trimmings, crispy Pork or maybe Beef is your thing?  Palmdale Meats, Seafood and Poultry can certainly help you with high quality roast meats.

However, if there’s only one or two of you…. the biggest problem with larger roasts is what to do with the left overs?  Do you cook a large roast and have subsidiary meals, using the same roast, for the next week eg: Shepherd’s Pie, Roast Meat Pies, Cold Roast Sandwiches or Salads?  Or perhaps you would prefer to miss out altogether because it is all too hard for one person?

No need to do either, go with a smaller, Gluten Free, Gourmet, Mini Roast!

Palmdale Meats, in the North Adelaide Village, offer a large variety of small, single/2 person roasts, the majority of which are GF – Speak to John or Kym, they’ll point you in the right direction.  These single/double serve roasts are much quicker to cook and give you a great gourmet meal at a fraction of the cost of eating out.  The best thing is, there’s no wastage.

For a list of their current Mini Roasts, read on…
