My family used to go to an uncle who was Russian and he always had goats for milking and for eating. When I was young I was fearful cause we had to go to outhouse (you have them) and had to go through th goat pen. One of the mothers butted my sister. don't know what provoked her? My sister didn't want to go back there after that. This was in small town in the country.
A 'herd' of sheep is called a flock! Scottish knitwear is very good. You may have heard of Pringle, the knitwear company based in the Scottish borders. Most golfers proudly own at least one Pringle sweater. Scotland is also famous for its cashmere knitwear.

I don't eat lamb EVERY Sunday - but love what we call a 'Sunday Roast' meal - which in the UK can be lamb, pork, beef,chicken or duck - served with all the usual vegetables.

I'm not too keen on goat, and would never choose to cook it myself. But when I visit Jamaican friends, I eat curried goat. It's certainly way down on the list of my favourite foods.

another fantastic looking one ishbel, thanks. i've been thinking about doing a whole leg some sunday, and i think this will be a hit.
i'm not a fan of mint with lamb, and so often that's all you see here in the u.s.. i mean i'll enjoy it that way, but it's only one way to make it. i love lamb and am always looking for new preps. rosemary and apples, garlic and leeks/celery always goes well.
do i really have to waste a pint of cider, tho? oh well, for the cause...

btw, i recommend magner's or bullmer's irish cider if you can find it.

The Bulmer's cider available here is the English stuff made in Herefordshire. I tend to use Merrydown dry cider! And yes, you have to waste a pint (imperial one, remember!) - but just THINK about that sauce....

I love mint sauce with lamb - YUMMMMM. But I always make my own. and I absolutely HATE that bright green coloured, slightly sweetie-tasting mint jelly that is readily available.

Here you go, pdswife. I forgot that I make it with Swiss Chard, not spinach. It's one of my favorite stews and the house smells so good when I get home from work!

Lee

Lamb and Red Lentil Stew
  • 1 large onion -- chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic -- minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups Swiss chard -- chopped
  • 1 bag red lentils (2 cups)
  • 2 lamb shanks
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
Saute onion and garlic in oil until limp in a skillet. Combine with remaining ingredients, except lemon juice, and 2 quarts water in a crock pot. Cover and cook on low 8 to 10 hours. Add lemon juice, adjust seasonings and serve. Shanks may be served on the side or meat may be removed from bones, diced and returned to soup. Serves 4 to 6

Wonderful!

Thanks Ishbel for the explanation. I learned about different parts of world in school but never been there. Goat is not good to eat . I rememeber my uncle barbequing it. The milk had strong flavor and didn't know any difference until I tasted different goat milk. You t h ink a goat a goat, not necessarily the case. Thanks for your recipe. Just like buckytom I will surely try it . Have t o do some search to try to find right ingredients. You are right about the green mint. Someday would you post your mint sauce on here?

Am not a fan of goat either, but knew a woman who raised goats and she would have the kids butchered. That was very good meat but you cannot get it in the US unless you know someone who raises the animals, or so I am told.

Will try this very soon. They usually don't carry lamb regularly in the store I shop. Usually around Easter they are getting it. I have seen the lamb already seasoned and prepared to just bake. I would never get one that is already with seasoning. I like to know what is in it. The sauce just sounds so good too. thanks again
