            DAY #9 - Lamb Rub

Certain herbs always
match with sacrifices from
Wales or New Zealand

LAMB RUB is the perfect compliment to a leg, or shoulder of lamb. We have created the perfect, aromatic blend for your roasted dish. Mint has long been the go to herb for lamb, and we have blended it  with rosemary, garlic, onion, and black pepper. It can also be used for roasted orange vegetables like squash or carrots.

It makes a wonderful paste when blended with some extra virgin olive oil and salt. If you choose to add a touch of lemon zest, then it has an extra zing of fresh citrus which is welcome any flavourful meat.
