Recipe by Aunty Dotty

This is a recipe I found in The Age Newspaper last year -'05. It was the author's own mucking about from a few sources so may not be 100 % authentic - but then not much is... It's a wonderful sour dimension from the fruit combined with the fattiness of the lamb and punch of mint. Worth a try, really unusual. Even better the next day...
