Misty in SapinWhat was that?

YogiI said I will concentrate on cooking and try not to wake you.   rack of lamb recipe. Right where was I are yes we are going to cook a Rack of Lamb which we bought from Tesco in West Durrington The new store has a butcher counter and they have a nice selection of fresh English and Scottish meat and if you ask the butcher they will prepare the meat the way you want it. So we asked to have two racks tied together like the picture above which gave us a joint around 650kg just over 1 pound in weight. Local meat is better than imports, especially with Lamb as New Zealand lamb is frozen before transporting and it never taste the same after being frozen, nice fresh English beef or Welsh or Scottish is what you need cost more but the taste is far better. Our joint cost about £14.00 and would feed around four.

Cooking our Rack of Lamb 
It is easy. Set the oven to 180c (160c fan) sprinkle them with herbs I used province mixture of herbs about £1.50 Sprinkle all over the Rack of Lamb. Pop them in a dish, add a large glass of  white wine let it sit for a few hours   and then roast them for 90 minutes or so depending on weight the one I have weighed around 650kg about 1lb4oz. And you have gravy from the wine and the meat juices. The joint is two racks of lamb tied together so this will take longer. While cooking scoop the fluids in the baking dish and poor over the top of the Lamb.

You can plunge in a knife and separate them to check how well done they are. They are very user friendly and will happily be bunged back into the oven if they need a little more time.
