Hind Quarter of Lamb Marinated


  • leg of lamb
  • a light forcemeat well-seasoned
  • fat bacon
  • 1 quart of veal stock
  • 1/2 gill of vinegar
  • whole black pepper
  • some salt
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 onions cut in pieces
  • a little garlick
  • 1/2 pint of rhenish wine
  • a veal caul


Bone the leg, fill the cavity with a light forcemeat well-seasoned, sew it up and lard the top part of the quarter with slips of fat bacon. When done, take the veal stock, vinegar, whole black pepper, salt, bay leaves, onions, garlick, and rhenish wine. Boil all the ingredients together a quarter of an hour, put the lamb into a deep dish, and strain the liquor to it. Let it lay five or six hours, turn it several times, then roast the lamb gently with a veal caul over it. When it is nearly done, let it colour a little and glaize the top. Serve it up with a sauce under it, made with the above liquor boiled down almost to a glaize, with some cullis added.

N. B. In the same manner may be done a shoulder or leg of lamb.
