These ingredients are noted on the web site and the discounts will be automatically calculated when the ingredient is added to your cart.

The best part is that you might as well add that extra pound of mushrooms, a bottle of truffle oil, some pasta or your favorite "pantry staples" because the shipping costs may not even change!

Artisan/History/Story

"Kurobuta” means “black pig” in Japanese. Here it is more often called Berkshire pork. This heritage breed “pedigree pig” is much slower growing than your supermarket pork which is commercially farmed for quick time to market--NOT flavor and marbling. This is certified 100% pure Berkshire. The Kurobuta (or Berkshire) pig is a unique pig which has ancestry from the British Isles and Asia and is being carefully preserved by caring farmers here domestically. The farmers take extraordinary care in assuring these pedigree pigs a healthy and happy environment--of course free of hormones or antibiotics.

How to Prep/Store

Store unopened in your refrigerator for a week. After opening use within three days or freeze. We recommend the use of a vacuum sealer with high quality freezer bags. Some trimming and a little salt and pepper is all you need. No marinating needed here! Roast as a whole rack for a great feast-like presentation or carve as a roast and save the ribs for the grill.
