BOX 3227, RINCON ANNEX SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNI_A Lamb is the popular meat of spring and its delicate flavor blends well with fresh fruit and vege- tables. Practically all lamb cuts are ten- der enough to be roasted or broiled. The neck, shank and breast are ex- ceptions and should be cooked by braising, or cut into small pieces for stewing. Lamb chops for oven broiling are best if cut thick. Thin chops dry out before they are done. Place the chops on the broiler pan and ar- range in the oven so that the top surface is about 3 inches from the heat source. Allow about 7 or 8 minutes per side for broiling. Turn chops only once, seasoning each side as it is done. For variation in flavor, sprinkle with garlic or celery salt. In roasting leg of lamb, the fell, which i the thin, paper-like cover- ing, should not be removed. The leg keeps its shape better, cooks in less time and is jucier if lhe fell is left on. To roast, season with salt and pepper and place fat side up on a rack in a low-sided bright pan. The low-sided pan allows the mcat to brown evenly on all sides. The hrightness of the pan reflects the heat and helps prevent spattering of fat in the oven. Do not cover, do not add water. Cook at 300 F for approximately 30 minutes pet pound. Different seasonings vary the fla- vor of lamb. Try sticking slivers of garlic into slits made in the meat. Here are other suggestions: (I) In- sert a peeled clove of garlic next to the bone at each end of tim leg of lamb, and sprinkle, the roast with a small amount of rosemary. (2) Baste the roast with French dress- ing. The gravy is delicious. (3) Rub the lamb with garlic and dust with a mixture of salt, pepper, ginger, dry mustard and chili powder. After roasting for an hour, baste the roast with tomato SOUl] and a teaspoon of caraway seeds. Leftover lamb is ahnost as wel- come as the original dish. Combine it with a zippy meat sauce and serve on steaming brown rice. The sauce requires 134 cups ground leftover lamb, 2 tablespoons chopped onion, cup chopped celery, 3 table- spoons fat, 2 tablespoons flour, 2 cups cooked tomatoes, 1 tablespoon chopped green pepper, a/ teaspoon chili powder,  teaspoon salt and 3 cupscooked brown or white rice. Brown the meat, onion and celery in fat. Add flour and blend. Add toma- toes, green pepper and seasonings. Cover and cook slowly for 15 min- utes. Serve on hot rice. Serves 6. played and entertainment was fur. nished by the girls. Concluding the affair, refresh- ments were served to seven girl scouts, their mothers and a guest.
