Classic Roasted Lamb
(this classic recipe comes from Ina Garten)
- 12 large unpeeled garlic cloves, divided
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
- Kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1 (6-pound) boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and tied
- 4 to 5 pounds small unpeeled potatoes (16 to 20 potatoes)
- 2 tablespoons good olive oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place the oven rack in the lower third of the oven so the lamb will sit in the middle of the oven.
Peel 6 of the cloves of garlic and place them in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Add the rosemary, 1 tablespoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and butter. Process until the garlic and rosemary are finely minced. Thoroughly coat the top and sides of the lamb with the rosemary mixture. Allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
Toss the potatoes and remaining unpeeled garlic in a bowl with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place in the bottom of a large roasting pan. Place the lamb on top of the potatoes and roast for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours, or until the internal temperature of the lamb is 135 degrees (rare) or 145 degrees (medium). Remove from the oven and put the lamb on a platter; cover tightly with aluminum foil. Allow the lamb to rest for about 20 minutes. Slice and serve with the potatoes.
Easter is coming… and we have a comfort food classic for your weekend!

10% off when purchased together
Smoked Ham with a Maple Mustard Glaze
- 6-10lb Smoked Ham
- ½ cup Sweet Sourland Farm NJ Maple Syrup
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons mustard (Muirhead Dijon or Three Monkeys Mustard)
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
Preheat Oven to 325 degrees.
Put all ingredients for glaze into a saucepan and whisk together. Bring to boil over medium high heat then lower heat and simmer, stirring often, until thickened a little (about 10 minutes).
Pour 1 cup of water in the bottom of a roasting pan with rack. Place ham on rack and cover with foil. Bake about 18 minutes per pound, or until inner temperature reads about 135 degrees. Remove from oven, uncover, and brush glaze over entire ham.
Return ham to oven uncovered and bake another 20-30 minutes until the glaze caramelizes and internal temperature is 140 degrees. Remove ham from oven and glaze again. Let rest 15 minutes before carving and serving. (While ham is resting internal temp will rise to 145 degrees.)
