I'm going to a farmers market at the weekend, so prime opportunity to stock up on meat, eggs, fresh local produce.
But what would you recommend? I'm thinking dry-cure proper bacon to start...
I could do with suggestions of cheaper cuts of meat, or items that can be used in lots of different ways? It's a bit warm for stews at the minute though so does that rule out the really cheap cuts?
Also does anyone prioritise what meat needs to be organic? Eg I saw somewhere (I've been reading around a lot!) that pork is one to really watch, as they store vitamin D in the fat so outdoor / organic is critical. As opposed to chicken, because free range is readily available in supermarkets.
Any thoughts, ideas...?
