We will celebrate summer come rain or shine

Posted By Andrew @ 10:14 pm in Uncategorized

Sunshine and Showers never stopped the great british BBQ devotee from heating up the coals.

The BBQ purist might go Classic Pork with a rasher of Streaky or Shoulder bacon.

If you have slightly sweeter tastes try Sun-dried Tomato and Apple varieties of Sausages and Burgers.  Delicious with a peppery rocket salad.

If you fancy a change from the traditional try our Spare Ribs with a sticky chinese sauce.

Family and friends arriving en mass? Mix it up and have a look at our BBQ box in the special section.( These can be made to order with your choice of products).

75% Lean Pork Sausages

Posted By Andrew @ 9:30 am in Uncategorized

All Blue Pig Company Sausages are made with a minimum lean pork content of 75%.

We think our customers prefer to buy actual pork rather than the assortment of fillers often used by other producers.

Check the lean meat content on your usual brand. It should be above 60% as a minimum.

A Fantastic Day at Askham Bryan College

Posted By Andrew @ 10:47 am in Uncategorized

As the rain poured down at home in the Dales the Blue Pig Company attended Askham Bryan Colleges Lambing Sunday. Thankfully York stayed lovely and dry for the event which attracted plenty of visitors.

We had another great BBQ and  hope all our customers enjoyed their day. We will see you again at another event.

Blue Pigs Black Pudding

Posted By Andrew @ 12:37 pm in Black Pudding

The Blue Pigs Black Pudding is fast becoming one of our customers favourites.

We keep our spice mix to ourselves but are happy to divulge the odd secret.

Our black puddings are baked in the oven, in loaf tins, ready for you to grill, fry or bake.

By slowly baking rather than boiling, the pudding has a beautifully intense depth of flavour and a meaty texture.

The pudding is happy to be frozen for 3 months so you cooks don’t run out.

Pancetta wrapped King Prawns

Posted By Andrew @ 6:44 pm in Continental

Wrap the prawns in  pancetta covering the prawn completely.

Use small wooden skewers or toothpicks to secure, or if your clever, tuck the pancetta in at the ends.

Season with a small amount of black pepper.

Warm up the griddle pan and cook until the pancetta is very crispy.

Dip in a sweet/chilli sauce of your choosing.


Pancetta makes any soup sensational

Posted By Andrew @ 10:23 am in Continental

A quick and easy winter to spring soup dish with extra bite.

Fry off 4 rashers of diced pancetta.
Remove from the pan and fry off a small onion and some garlic.
Dice a whole Celeriac and add to the pan.(you could add some celery for a sharper taste)
Use a good quality low salt vegetable or chicken stock to cover and simmer until soft.
Whiz it up until thick and smooth.
Season with a little black pepper.
Swirl in some cream.
Liberally scatter your pancetta.

You can replace the Celeriac with Peas for an even quicker soup.

There are so many recipes out there, each telling you a different quantity of ingredients, but always taste as you go along and create your own masterpiece.
