Cider and honey roast leg of lamb

Apples and cider go wonderfully with lamb. The apples break down on cooking and help thicken the sauce. Crisp roast potatoes and steamed tender stem broccoli make the perfect accompaniments.

This was soo good, forgot to take the fat off so it could have been better. also used home brewed spiced cider which was a bit strong for the gravy but it still turned out really good. ate it with garlic roast potatoes, roasted carrots, cauliflower and cheese sauce and yorkshire puddings. awesome sunday roast!!

this is a very old traditional British recipe at it's base. My gran used to stick the lamb with garlic and dress with rosemary and let it marinate in the apple juice or cider overnight. The apples were placed around the roasting tin after being cored and stuffed with breadcrumbs mixed with currents/sultanas. Then to the oven. Really nice dish and good to add carrots and parsnips to the roasting tin too.
