FWIW the strong taste of lamb might be because of the quality of the meat and its age.

When lamb is butchered when it is a bit older, it is called mutton and has a much stronger gamier taste than young lamb.

People might be buying mutton sold as lamb. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

I haven’t seen any, though it can probably be requested at a butcher

would kids like it or is it a mature adult taste?


I have always loved it from childhood but it’s very specific and not everyone does

I haven’t found that to be true of any meats I’ve bought, but that would be pretty deceptive if it’s true.

Lamb is a sheep under a year, mutton is sheep over a year. Selling it under a false name is totally unacceptable IMO especially since lamb is much more expensive

I personally don’t like the flavor, it’s pretty heavy/strong. I prefer beef any day. My husband likes it a lot though. As I’m sure you are seeing, it’s a very specific taste.

wow!

what a overwhelming response!

are there any parts of lamb that are less fatty?

I would like to get the lamb under a year but my butcher will never know what I am asking...

My family grew up on lamb (thanks to my grandmother) and we all love it!

It’s super fatty and soft which is why some people love it but some people can’t stomach it for the same reason.

It's a gamey taste and personally I can't handle it.
