    4 servings

Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

  • 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.
  • Broil 4-6 in. from the heat for 10-12 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), basting once with remaining glaze.
  • Remove lamb from the oven and loosely cover with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Brush with reserved glaze.

    This recipe was awful. I am not a novice cook, but have never made lamb before. My bf brought it for dinner and we decided this sounded good. I printed the recipe and followed it TO THE LETTER. The cook time is all wrong. I had it in under the broiler as it said for 12 minutes. The glaze was black and the lamb was raw. I would never use this again, even though the glaze that was edible was good.
