Lamb with Honey, Apple and Chive Glaze
Ingredients (Serves 3-4):

Lean lamb loin chops or cutlets,
Apple juice,
Apple sauce,
Set honey,
Red onions,
Fresh chives


Place 300ml (1⁄2pt) apple juice into a pan and add 60ml (4tbsp) prepared apple sauce and 30ml (2tbsp) set honey. Bring to the boil and simmer rapidly for 20-25 minutes until reduced to 150ml (1⁄4pt). Set aside to cool slightly.

Peel 450g (1lb) medium-sized parsnips, cut in half and place into a large non-stick roasting pan. Add 2 medium red onions, peeled and cut into wedges to the parsnips. Drizzle over 45ml (3tbsp) olive oil.

Season 6-8 lean loin chops or cutlets and add to the vegetables. Mix 30ml (2tbsp) freshly chopped chives into the apple glaze and brush over the chops or cutlets. Bake for 35-45 minutes, turning once and basting with any remaining glaze.

Serve with the roasted parsnips and onions, any remaining glaze and a fresh green salad.
