  • Ingredients:
    • 600g Flour
    • 300g salt
    • Water
    • 1/2 a Leg of lamb
    • Rosemary or juniper berries

    Mix together the flour and salt and slowly add water, bringing it together to form a stiff dough.

    Roll out the dough thin enough that it will encase the leg of lamb.

    Make slits in the lamb with a sharp knife and stuff a little rosemary or juniper berries into the flesh.

    Wrap the leg in the salt dough and cook for 2 hours (rare) up to 3 hours (well done) over hot coals, turning occasionally. Depending on conditions, this may need extra cooking time.

    Remove the now burnt and blackened salt dough before serving.
