  • Roasted Lamb

  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • ⅓ cup finely chopped carrot
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 1 cup soft bread crumbs (1½ slices)
  • Fresh plum wedges (optional)
  • Plum Jam Sauce

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Prepare Roasted Lamb: Preheat oven to 325°F. Rub leg of lamb all over with cut sides of garlic. In a small bowl, combine parsley, celery salt, pepper and paprika. Sprinkle parsley mixture evenly over lamb; rub in with your fingers. Place the lamb, fat side up, on a rack in a shallow roasting pan. Insert an oven-going meat thermometer in the center, making sure bulb does not touch bone. Roast, uncovered, for 1¼ hours.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add carrot and onion; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Stir in bread crumbs. Remove lamb from oven. Carefully pat crumb mixture over top of lamb. Continue roasting for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until desired doneness (140°F for medium-rare or 155°F for medium). Cover with foil; let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. (The temperature of the meat will rise about 5°F during standing.)
  3. Meanwhile, prepare Plum Jam Sauce: In a medium saucepan, whisk together plum jam, pineapple juice, orange juice, flour, dry mustard and mace. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more.
  4. Serve lamb with warm or cooled Plum Jam Sauce. If desired, garnish with fresh plum wedges.
