CHOP Butchery Shines in ‘St Ives Shopping Village’ Magazine
We’re thrilled to share some fantastic news with our beloved CHOP community! Our new store at St Ives ‘The Village’ shopping centre has been featured in the latest edition of the official ‘St Ives Shopping Village’ magazine. This is a significant milestone for us, and we’re overjoyed to have received such recognition.
The feature in the magazine not only highlights our store but also includes our very own delicious Honey Glazed Ham recipe – a perfect treat for any occasion. We’re proud to have our recipe shared with the wider community, showcasing the quality and creativity that CHOP Butchery is known for.
We invite you to read the full article and try out the recipe for yourself. You can find the magazine online here. Below, we’ve also included screenshots of the pages where our store and recipe were featured:
Your meat will be delivered Cryovaced, which is a superior form of packaging that allows fresh goods to be kept fresher for longer.There are some effects of using Cryovac packaging, but we believe these few are outweighed by the advantages. Specifically, the meat will change to a darker red colour while in the packaging due to the lack of exposure to oxygen.
The meat will also sweat while in the packaging and this can result in an unpleasant smell when you first open the packaging ( this is not an indication of the freshness of the meat).
To overcome both of these effects all you need to do is when you’re ready to eat your meat, simply remove it from the packaging and leave it out for 10-15 minutes. When out of the packaging and exposed to oxygen again the meat will slowly return to the usual red colour.
Once you have removed the meat, simply rinse out the bag and throw it in the bin and the smell will disappear too.
