Really yummy. I didn't have as much fresh rosemary as I thought, so sprinkled dried over the roast. I also failed at delgazing and burnt the pan! So I just used my home made mint sauce to moisten it up. Was great. Made for Photo Tag.
This is a great roast lamb recipe. If you worry about the amount of garlic, be assured this recipe is mild. My only problem was trying to convert Centigrade, or Celsius to Fahrenheit. I finally remembered that you multiply by 9/5 and add 32 to convert 200 degrees, C to 392 degrees, F.
I had to decide whether to stuff the rosemary sprigs in from the stem or the leaves. I used a Popsicle stick and stuffed the sprigs in, leaf first.
I served the lamb and potatoes with steamed potatoes and included some of my homemade jalapeno jelly as an aspic.
