    Please be aware of the walnut ingredient; anyone with nut-allergies should eliminate this ingredient from the recipe. Lamb is one of my favourite meats to prepare. More lamb recipes are forthcoming. A good friend from Calgary emailed this recipe to me in 1999. (Source: Cold Weather Cooking, Sara Leah Chase) It is a keeper. Serve with Mint Salsa Verde - recipe also included in this post (Source: Nantucket Open House Cookbook, Sara Leah Chase)
