    Tasty Tidbits's Note:

    When you invite friends over for Sunday lunch it's a time to relax, not be stuck in the kitchen among the pots and pans. This Roast Lamb is an excellent choice, especially when partnered with rosemary and honey and a sauce using fresh mint. The honey glaze turns the joint a lovely golden colour, and the honey-sweetened mint sauce is a flavoursome change from the sharp vinegary taste of traditional recipes. Serve with a hot gratin of Dauphinoise Potatoes and some braised leeks for a really special meal.

      Truly wonderful. The aroma of the cinnamon, rosemary and lamb filled the house while roasting and delicately flavored the lamb at first serving and leftovers. The gravy and the mint sauce are both superb. The recipe was followed as written and the lamb was so good that there are not enough adjectives to describe how much we enjoyed it. We served it with sweet potatoes and an asparagus salad. Thank you for this terrific addition to my recipe collection.

      Superb lamb. Turned out very tender, if a tiny bit too pink for my taste in the very centre. I think for a smaller joint (mine was 800g or half a leg) you might need to bake it for slightly more than the 30/mins per 500g rule. The skin was crispy from the honey and the gravy was to die for! I didn't have cider so used a high acid, dry white wine instead. Wasn't crazy over the mint sauce. It was a bit vinegary for my taste, but I think more honey and less vinegar would make it much nicer. I will experiment.

      Just wonderful. I did not enjoy the mint sauce as much as I had hoped to, but am not known for liking vinegar in a sauce. I may even have made a mistake with heating time for the sauce *blush*. Otherwise excellent: The lamb was just so tender! I actually used 8lbs of knuckle shoulder tied into three roasts and they turned out fantastically. Thanks for the recipe!
