The Frugal Gourmet Cooks With Wine – Jeff Smith – Copyright 1986 ”Balsamic vinegar is a wonderfully aged product from Modena, in Italy. It is unlike most wine vinegars in that the flavor is so mild.” Note marinating time.

Directions

  1. With a sharp knife, pierce the leg in several places and soak it for 5 hours in the olive oil mixed with the vinegar.
  2. Place it on a roasting rack and rub with the salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic.
  3. Bake until a thermometer reads 140*. 1 ¼-1 ¾ hours.
  4. Baste with the marinade several times during the roasting.
  5. Remove from the oven and let sit 30 minutes before carving.
