Frozen Quails and Poussin

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.

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.
