Dundee Lamb Chops

Recipe by English_Rose

Thanks to Mrs Keiller of Dundee, who bought a load of surplus oranges and made them into marmalade, Dundee is forever associated with that fruit (and jute and journalism as well as jam). So whenever marmalade is added to a recipe (as here) it immediately becomes "Dundee". The quantities below will serve four (unless the chops are very small or the appetites are large). Serve with a twist of orange on top of the chops and with boiled potatoes and fresh vegetables.

These are out of this world. Tender, bittersweet, fantastic! I used shoulder chops so the appearance isn't as nice as I would like (I definitely would use arm, rib or loin chops for guests) but the flavor can't be beat. And they are so easy. Thanks for posting this!!
