Ingredients

  • 5 pounds Open Nature boneless leg of lamb
  • 4 garlic cloves cut in half
  • 3 tablespoons O Organics extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped O Organics fresh rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¾ teaspoon ground pepper

The Glaze:

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Cut 8 small slits over the surface of the lamb. Tuck a half garlic clove in each slit.
  • Using kitchen string, tightly tie the lamb in several places (see photo above).
  • In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, rosemary, salt and pepper. Rub the rosemary mixture over the surface of the lamb.
  • Place the leg of lamb in a roasting pan or on a rimmed baking sheet. Cook at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
  • Decrease the heat to 350 degrees F and roast until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat reads 130 degrees F, about 1 ¼ hours. In the last 5 minutes of cooking, brush the lamb with ⅓ of the glaze.
  • Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for about 20 minutes. The temperature will rise about 10 degrees as the lamb rests, bringing it to medium-rare.
  • Brush the lamb with another ⅓ of the glaze. Slice against the grain. Serve with remaining glaze.

The Glaze:

  • In a small, whisk together the blackberry preserves, Worcestershire sauce and apple cider vinegar.
