Roast Lamb with Juniper Berries (gigot au genièvre) Recipes

Ingredients :

3lb leg of lamb

30 juniper berries

1 tbsp oil

salt, pepper

7fl oz chicken stock

Method :

Wipe the lamb and make small incisions with a knife all over the outside skin. Push 20 crushed juniper berries into the cuts and leave for 2 days in a cool place. Meanwhile, gently heat the oil with 10 juniper berries, then leave to infuse for 12 hours. Rub the meat with a little salt and pepper and then paint it all over with the flavored oil. Roast the meat on a rack in a roasting tin, basting from time to time, in a moderate oven (190C, 375F, Gas 5) for 1 hour 40 minutes (25 minutes per 500g/1lb plus 25 minutes). Make the gravy by pouring off the fat and boiling the meat juices in the roasting tin with the chicken stock. Check the seasoning and serve in a separate gravy dish.
