    Kitchen Dictionary: lamb


    Technically this tender meat comes from a sheep less than 1 year old. Baby lamb is 6-8 weeks and Spring lamb is 3-5 months, but both are milk fed. Yearling lamb is between 1-2 years, while anything over 2 years is mutton, which has a much stonger flavor and texture.

    plural: lamb


    Season: available year-round

    How to select: Can be purchased ground or in steaks, chops or roasts. Look for the lightest color to find the youngest, most tender meat. (Older meat is darker.)

    How to store: Will keep for 3 days in the refrigerator (roasts as long as 5 days) or frozen for 3 months.

    How to prepare: bake, braise, broil, grill, roast
