WE RAISE OUR OWN LAMB AND HAVE EXPERIMENTED WITH IT FOR SOMETIME AND THIS IS OUR ALL TIME FAVORITE. THE WHITE GRAPE JELLY COMES FROM OUR VINES AND IS IN ITSELF THE BEST...

Directions

  1. PRE-HEAT OVEN TO 325.
  2. IN A LARGE ROASTING PAN,COVER BOTTOM WITH OLIVE OIL.
  3. IN CENTER OF ROASTER PLACE 2 SPRIGS OF FRESH ROSEMARY,TWO GARLIC CLOVES CRUSHED.
  4. TWO SMALL SLICES GINGER.
  5. PLACE THE LEG OF LAMB ON TOP OF THE HERBS.
  6. PEPPER LEG AND COVER LEG WITH WHITE GRAPE JELLY THOROUGHLY.
  7. PLACE IN OVEN AND ROAST 30minutes PER POUND.
  8. OR UNTIL IT COMES AWAY FROM BONE AND IS NICE AND DARK.
  9. WHEN COOKED REMOVE LEG AND SET ASIDE TO COOL SLIGHTLY FOR SLICING.
  10. WITH THE WONDERFUL AROMATIC DRIPPINGS REMOVE EXCESS FAT AND THE HERB REMAINS IN THE BOTTOM OF ROASTER.
  11. BOIL YOUR KETTLE AND ADD JUST ENOUGH WATER TO MAKE A LOVELY DARK GRAVY.
  12. YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THE FLAVOUR OF THE GRAPE AND HERBS.
  13. YUM.
  14. SUGGESTED ACCOMPANYING VEGGIES.
  15. ROASTED SQUASH.
  16. GREEN BEANS WITH SLICED ALMONDS AND MUSHROOMS.
  17. IF YOU DO NOT PREFER THE SQUASH THEN ROAST THEN HALF POTATOES PAR BOIL AND ADD TO LEG FOR LAST 30 MINUTES THEY ARE EQUALLY AS ENJOYABLE.
  18. HOPE YOU ENJOY IT IS WONDERFUL.
  19. I USE YOUNG LAMB AND MAKE SURE IT IS WELL TRIMMED OF FAT.

We have a boneless leg of lamb which has been marinating overnight in lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, garlic cloves, and my own fresh rosemary sprigs I grow. I knew we wanted to oven roast it today for Easter Dinner, but - was unsure what temperature, etc. This recipe sounds wonderful as well and we'll try it one day, thanks!. Thanks for the great information - and wow, you raise your own lambs as well as grow your own grapes, that is awesome!
