The last time I tried lamb, I didn’t like it at all. We had purchased 1/2 of a lamb through a farm a year or so ago, and I didn’t like it. My husband ended up cooking it whenever I wasn’t going to be home for the evening or I was away on a retreat . Or I’d cook it for dinner & eat something else. I really did not like it. It had a “lamby taste” to me. You know what I mean, right? Yuck. I love the ideaÂ of lambs. We could raise them in our orchard. We could have a sheep dog. Our kids could be real-life shepherds! 🙂 But why raise lamb if you don’t like the taste of it?
Last night I made this. It was our last bit of lamb in the freezer–a leg of lamb. I was going to make it for everyone else & I would find somethingÂ elseÂ to eat in the fridge. As it cooked all day, it did not smell offensive to Â me one bit. In fact, it actually smelled good. Kind of tempting, even. When it was all done, I decided to take a little sample. I liked it. I did. And I would eat it on a train, and in the rain, and in a box, and with a fox, and all of that jazz. It was actually quite good!
Try this, try this, and you’ll see. Try this, and then you tell me. Do you like lamb? Are you willing to try this recipe and let me know what you think? 🙂
And sorry for no photo. I guess I was so busy eating that I totally forgot to snap a photo (odd–I take photos of all of my food!). 🙂
