3 1/2 lb Leg of Lamb
2 Garlic Cloves
1/2 ts Cracked Pepper
1/2 ts Garlic Salt

This is another recipe I got in the States, probably from a supermarket or
other (and no, I didn't go shopping on holiday!) but I can't remember which
one. The recipe card is headed Goodings Words Worth Eating btw.

Preheat the oven to 325. Cut 14 small slits into fat on the lamb. Insert
slivers of garlic. Combine pepper, garlic salt and dry mustard. Rub over
meat surface. Place lamb in flat baking pan. Top with orange peel. Bake
uncovered for 30-35 minutes per pound or until a meat thermometer reaches
175. Prepare glaze while lamb is baking; combine 4 glaze ingredients and
heat for 3-5 minutes. Spoon glaze over lamb during last 30 minutes of
baking time. Remove lamb from the oven, allow to sit in pan for 10-15
minutes. Baste with pan juices. Transfer to a serving platter. Garnish
platter with orange slices centred with a teaspoon of mint jelly.

Serve with new potatoes and fresh peas or fresh asparagus. This glaze is
also delicious on broiled lamb chops.
