- Thouroughly mix remaining 1/2 cup vinegar with honey and set aside.

- During the last half hour baste frequently with reserved honey mixture.

I followed this recipe closely except I added a little too much vinegar (by not keeping some aside for the honey baste). I also used dried rosemary. I made it for about 1/3rd portion of the recipe. I didn't use a ziplocked bag (none on hand) instead just leaving it in a baking dish with plastic wrap over it overnight in the fridge. It was still great tasting with the slightest hint of too much vinegar due to my mistake. The ingredients complimented each other and in fact enhanced the flavour of the rosemary. It all enhanced the flavour of the lamb. I served it with roast potatoe and pumpkin and boiled brocoli, cauliflower and carrot. The cut of lamb is slightly more messy (as any ribs are). Overall an excellent recipe with an excellent result.
