goldenticket Posted July 18, 2006 Share Posted July 18, 2006 I've had pretty limited experience with halal and kosher meat, and only fairly recently have I begun to try local and/or organic meats. I have noticed a big difference in the taste of chicken from Polyface and Bell & Evans versus the mass-produced Tysons/Perdue products. Ground lamb from a local farmer was delicious. The halal meat I saw at The Lebanese Butcher (but didn't purchase - yet) looked quite good. The sausages (Italian and breakfast) from Smith Meadows Farm come from pigs that are free-range and all natural and IMHO taste really good. They are also noticeably leaner than say a Jimmy Dean-type product. But then so do/are the sausages from Whole Foods, which are made from pork that are "beyond" natural, according to the WF website. What have you tried? What differences have you observed in flavor, quality, price, etc.? And what are the noticeable differences in flavor of Halal/Kosher meat as opposed to meat that is raised/slaughtered using other methods? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
