TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 frenched racks of lamb (1-1/2 pounds each)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup cherry preserves
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lime juice


  • 1. Place lamb on a greased foil-lined baking sheet. Drape a piece of heavy-duty foil over bones to prevent overbrowning. In a small bowl, combine the honey, preserves, oil and lime juice. Set aside 1/2 cup. Spoon half of the remaining glaze over lamb.
  • 2. Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 10-12 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°), basting once with remaining glaze.
  • 3. Remove lamb from the oven and loosely cover with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Brush with reserved glaze. Yield: 4 servings.
