1 (5 pound)
leg of lamb
salt and black pepper to taste
hard apple cider
Light and sweet taste. Even my picky husband liked it. LOL :) I would recommend basting the lamb (like a turkey) with it's own juices several times while it's in the oven so that it comes out moist.
I made the recipe as stated but decided to take it a step further by marinating it in a cup of hard apple cider and rubbing the lamb with the sweet version of 'quatre epice' with the addition of white pepper. The sauce was really good, but next time I would make more. The lamb tasted overly game-y this time, perhaps the spices I used brought out that flavour, and I would try the savoury variation next time, or use less spices. Tasty.
i use apple cider with white meat .. pork chicken poached in apple cider .. not so keen on using lamb but was worth a try thanks
