Method

To Roast Lamb

1

To make the stuffing, place the prunes in a small saucepan with the port and orange juice, and bring to a gentle simmer.

2

Leave to cool and the prunes will absorb most of the liquid.

3

When cooled, chop the prunes coarsely, retaining any leftover liquid.

4

Heat the oil in a heavy frying pan, add the onion and cook over a gentle heat until softened.

5

Add the breadcrumbs, prunes and leftover liquid, and the parsley.

6

Mix together well, season with salt and pepper.

7

Allow to cool.

8

Preheat the oven to 200°C

9

Open out the boned lamb and spread the stuffing over the inside surface.

10

Roll up and tie neatly with string.

11

Season the outside with a little more salt and pepper and place in a roasting pan.

12

Cook for 45 minutes and then remove from the oven.

13

You can check if the lamb is cooked by piercing through to the centre with a meat skewer.

14

The juices should be very pale pink – if they are dark pink or red, the lamb will be very rare and may need a little longer in the oven.

15

After resting the meat in a warm place for 10 minutes, remove the string, cut the lamb into thick slices and serve one slice per person with fresh seasonal vegetables.
