A nice variation to lamb. You can use regular marmalade but it sweetens the taste.

I cooked this with the "wrong" marmalade, so found it to be a bit sweet, so I added the rind of a lemon to it too, which toned down the sweetness a bit. It was quick and tasty, and very rich, but I will try to get the bitter marmalade and do it again.

I was looking for a sauce to go with the pork that i had bought, and wanted something slightly different to what I usually cook. This was absolutley gorgeous, and I have no doubt that if it went this well with pork, it will be divine with lamb - thanks Bergy, this one's a keeper. I used sweet marmalade, and didn't find it to be too overpowering, I think it was just right... but I have a sweet tooth!!
