And use lovely fresh rosemary sprigs, from your own garden or your local nursery. I love St Omer Nursery in Paarl's lovely herbs of good quality. Fresh garlic is also way better that buying the little tubs of garlic that is mixed with other ingredients. The roast lamb for Christmas is a very tasty meat on the table.
The prescribed cooking/roasting time for roast lamb is 30 minutes for every 500 g. simply if you have a 2.5 kg meat, you will cook it approximately for 1 and 1/2 hours.
Make a delicious gravy from the sauce the roast lamb leave behind or simply enjoy with mint sauce.
