    JustJanS's Note:

    This is a dish we eat once or twice a month. For a change, you can cook sliced potatoes and sauteed onions in stock under the lamb. They get all those yummy garlicky juices dripping on to them.

      Would you please pass the jelly? The mint jelly, that is! Jan, this recipe turned out a moist, succulent lamb which had the most pleasant flavor. I served with roasted potatoes and mint jelly as you suggested, also a broccoli casserole and egg twist dinner rolls. Thank you, Jan, for a wonderful supper tonight!

      Absolutely delicious! I've made this using both bone-in and boneless leg of lamb and it's fabulous. It made the perfect Easter dinner with tiny new red potatoes and asparagus with hollandaise sauce. As an added bonus we have enough leftovers to make lamb curry. A wonderful, wonderful recipe!
