Lamb with Apricots

Recipe by yooper

I got this out of a "Taste of Home" Christmas issue a few years back. The lady who submitted this was Jewish, and this was her entree for her Hanukkah meal. I'm not Jewish, but I love lamb, and this recipe is a winner! The sweetness of the citrus fruits and the the heat from the spices really stand out!

Another fantastic recipe Yooper. This was quick and easy to make, and tasted fantastic. Next time, I will finish it with slivered almonds and preserved lemon strips.
