    This is another recipe my DD learned to make at ACCC culinary school. She loved this, but I have not tried it. It is a dish from Turkey called Laban Ummu.

      This is totally delicious! I followed the recipe exactly, and served the dish with roasted potatoes and asparagus tips. It's so easy and elegant that I intend to keep it in my dinner party cookbook.

      I think this is five stars but I over heated my Balkan yogurt so it separated. DH said he didn't like it, maybe the mint aspect. I also added some boiled potato chunks to the sauce when serving and some cooked peas while it was heating. I used lamb shoulder which I simmered somewhat longer, water and sea salt, to taste, vindalia onion (sweet onions), sweet butter (unsalted), since I wasn't planing to burn the garlic I didn't see a need to clarify the butter, plus the fresh mint. Made for Summer 2012 NA*ME TAG! (June, July, August)
