Heritage pork has more marbling resulting in more tender and juicy meat
Most Americans are surprised to learn that there are dozens of breeds of pigs and that each breed has its own wondrous and unique flavor. This package is an unprecedented opportunity to experience just how varied the taste of the same livestock can be from one cherished heritage breed to the next.
Heritage Foods has made it our mission to promote these pure, rare breeds, each with their own colorful history and provenance. In fact, we’ve been able to protect them from the brink of extinction by creating a growing market for their earthy, natural flavors. As we like to say, “you need to eat ’em to save ’em.”
The St. Louis rib is the same as a spare rib, but with the fatty brisket bone trimmed off making this cut a little more delicate and easier to cook more evenly. As with all of our ribs, this popular cut comes from extremely healthy, free-ranging pigs and only need a little bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper to bring out their extraordinary flavor... but we’ll understand if you want to get out the barbecue sauce!
The secret to great pork is to start off with great ingredients, and nothing beats our storied Heritage breeds — Berkshire, Red Wattle, Duroc, Gloucestershire Old Spot, Large Black, and Tamworth. Each breed comes from a different culinary tradition, and boasts a distinctive, nuanced flavor.
