      This was so good it had a bit of oomph with some sweetness and taste of sour and so easy to prepare. The sauce it produces is fantastic (the DM a women who usually says so to sauce of gravy, well I put it on her plate, there was none left when dinner was finished). I had 4 lamb shanks weighing aboout 300 grams each (not french cut) and even after an hour at 170C fan forced oven the meat was coming off the bone so I turned it down to 120 for the next hour and the result was succulent meat that was falling off the bone. Will think of Latchy every time I make this. Made for Bargain Basement.
