Thanksgiving Lamb and Holiday Stuffing
This recipe was a winner in the Grand Lamb Cook-Off years ago at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. It was submitted by Joanne Oxley. I have used it many times and it is a favorite with my family and friends.
1 leg of lamb, 3 to 5 pounds
1 clove of garlic, sliced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 cup whole-berry cranberry sauce
1/4 cup cherry preserves
1 tablespoon red wine
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Place lamb on rack in shallow roasting pan. Make several slits on the outside of the lamb and insert garlic slices. Combine ginger and mustard and rub on the outside of the lamb. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
Combine cranberry sauce and preserves in a saucepan. Cook over low heat until melted; stir in wine. Spoon sauce over the lamb and bake an additional 1 hour and 15 minutes before carving.
Skim fat from pan drippings. Take remaining drippings and add enough water to measure 1 ¼ cups. Pour cranberry drippings into saucepan. Combine flour and ¼ cup of water, mixing well. Add flour mixture to pan drippings. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until gravy is thickened. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
Slice lamb and serve with gravy and lamb stuffing.
Holiday Stuffing
5 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
2 cups coarsely crumbled corn bread
3 tablespoons minced crystallized ginger
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1 large tart green apple, cored, finely diced
2 teaspoons finely grated orange peel
1/2 teaspoon salt
Melt butter in saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion and cook until soft and lightly browned. Remove from heat and stir in ginger, pecans, apple, orange peel and salt. Add enough water so that stuffing is moist not saturated. (Start with ½ cup of water then gradually add more). Place dressing in a compact casserole dish and place in the oven alongside the lamb. Cook the stuffing for approximately 45 minutes, or until the top is crisp and golden. If the stuffing is browning too quickly, cover the top of the casserole with aluminum foil.
Lamb Barbecue
This recipe was given to me by Florence Hall, one of the founders of the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. Florence was an excellent cook and ran a catering business for a number of years. Serve this on plump, warm hamburger rolls.
2 ½ pounds ground lamb
2 medium onions, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1 can tomato soup
2 teaspoons vinegar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup uncooked rice
2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1 bottle chili sauce
