Mutton

  • 02.043 They were toasting mutton on long spits of wood,
  • 02.044 “Mutton yesterday,
  • 02.044 mutton today,
  • 02.044 if it don’t look like mutton again tomorrer,”
  • 02.046 for a nice bit o’ fat valley mutton like what this is.”
  • 02.047 pinched the very mutton off the spits,
  • 02.075 that they used for carrying off mutton
  • 02.075 and the gnawed mutton,
  • 07.001 only cold mutton

I have heard that the mutton from a mature but young sheep is tender and flavorful – but there’s a balance to be found between wool-production and tasty nutrition.  Do you think the trolls were eating only old sheep?
