Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


Delicious marinade for lamb chops! I used fresh mint from my garden. Funny thing is when I was a child, I couldn't eat any kind of lamb without mint jelly. Then when I grew up, I never ate mint jelly with it. However this recipe brings the right amount of mint and sweetness to the lamb. Scrumptious! Made for Alphabet Soup tag.
