Maple / Red Gum Smoked Bacon

Palmdale Meat, Poultry and Seafood, in the North Adelaide Village, smoke their own long and short back bacon.  Truly smoked, they don’t use “liquid” smoke, no – their Bacon is smoked over authentic Red Gum Sawdust, with just a hint of Gluten Free true Maple Syrup. This on-site smoked bacon lends a flavour you are highly unlikely to have experienced before.

When it became increasingly obvious that if Palmdale Meats were to continue to offer high quality, fabulous tasting Gluten Free Bacon at a reasonable price – they had to start smoking it themselves.

You might even be surprised to hear that bacon is good for you too.  Why?…..

John Keough, Manager - darn good cook

Palmdale Mayo – Perfect with our Smoked Salmon

Did you know that if John Keough, Manager of Palmdale Meats, Poultry and Seafood, didn’t get an apprenticeship as a Butcher when he was 17 – he would be a Chef right now?  In 1978 he was waiting for offers for both apprenticeships. Lucky for all of us he chose being a Butcher – because his love of food and cooking can still be shared by us all, as well giving us, arguably, the best Butcher in Adelaide!

One of his recipes – such a simple one – is a Mayonnaise that goes especially well with Palmdale’s Smoked Salmon and already a favourite with many of John’s customers. Use it spread on a cracker – or spread it over a whole side of Palmdale Salmon before presenting it to the table. Sprinkle it with a few extra whole or chopped capers for an extra special touch.

Slow Cooking…. Comfort Food for Cold Days

Slow Cooking… it’s a term we pretty much all use, right?  But are you doing it right?  It isn’t something you can do with all meats, there are special cuts of meat that are best for slow cooking.  These special cuts need the longer cooking time and in addition, they provide the consistency you want, it doesn’t turn to mush.  Slow cooked meats offset the need for a longer cooking time by, generally, being a cheaper cut of meat and providing the most delicious taste!  They even provide health benefits.

For the best soup cuts, casserole cuts or roasts from Palmdale Butchers, for slowcooking – along with some recipe suggestions, read on.
