Dundee Marmalade Lamb Chops

Recipe by Millereg

Thanks to a Mrs. Keiller of Dundee, who bought a load of surplus oranges and made them into marmalade, Dundee will forever be associated with that fruit (and jute and journalism as well as jam). So whenever marmalade is added to a Scottish recipe it is immediately labeled as "Dundee". The quantities below will serve four (unless the chops are very small or the appetites are large).

Found myself with two thick fresh lamb leg chops and decided to give your recipe a go. The marmalade and ginger imparted such a lovely flavour. The vinegar must be the trick - the chops were lovely and tender. I served them with Baked Sweet Onions (#18326), which turned out to be a great match. Thank you for sharing – brilliant!
