Happy Easter! here's one of my favorite roast recipes.

Thanks Jamie!  I've never done a roast lamb before, but want to try!   I just watched the episode of Jamie at Home on Roast lamb and it made me want to give it a go.   smile

Great recipe. Since you asked on the front page, I'm trying to convince my parents to let me roast some lamb buuuuttt they dont want to risk letting me cook something so monumental. Roasting a duck was fine with them but lamb NOOO. Such is life. roll  wink Thanks for the recipe and I loooooovvveeeeeee Jamie at home! Just got it as it just came out in Canada.

Cheers,
Chase

Re: Happy Easter! here's one of my favorite roast recipes.

I cooked a shoulder of Welsh Lamb for my family last weekend, it was realy very tender.
Like all meat its worth buying the best that you can afford.

I am planning a trip along to the farmers market Saturday morning for a leg of Welsh Lamb as that is a traditional in our family for Easter Sunday lunch.

I have to admit that I have never thought a
of cooking a shoulder of lamb with Cranberry Juice before,
I do often put redcurrent jelly in the lamb gravy , I know that many people might think this a little odd but it realy does work.
I have also been known to put a spoonfull or two of Cranberry sauce into lamb gravy and this works well also.

and.. I have never thought about having the shoulder boned before either.. hmm  I think that if I did this I might be tempted cook the bone in the roasting tray along side the rolled joint of lamb for added flavour.

Happy Easter Jamie - amd all.

I've been wondering which way to do lamb this Easter. I was going to poach it for a change, but this looks even better, and I've got all the ingredients to hand so may give it a go.

I'll have to bone the shoulder first, but that's no hardship.

Thanks again - I wondered why I bought those butternut squash today smile

Re: Happy Easter! here's one of my favorite roast recipes.

Hi Jamie and all. Thanks for the recipe, JO.

Since kids are half Greek, it will be lamb, of course, though it's not at it's best at this time of year, being Autumnal rather than Spring.Having said that, we have very strict rules regulating what is lamb (v what is mutton). The inspectors at the abattoirs have to give the "nod" for the lamb to be stamped with a pink label stating it is lamb and give other various details on the carcass.

All hell would break loose if the lamb wasn't studded with sprigs of rosemary from the garden and slivers of garlic and roasted on a rack. Served with roast potatoes in duck fat, sweet potato and peas. Pretty boring.

I don't make a gravy (flour based) as such. It's more of a reduction--> jus, but Mummza, I do paint the lamb with cranberry sauce for the last half hour (and longer and it will burn because of the sugar content) and add a small amount to the reduction after I have skimmed the fat. I add by taste- not too sweet.

And to think that Greek Easter is a month away. Here we will go again ...wink
