What to eat for Easter? Easter, after Christmas, second to the Christian Tradition is that the Familiar wants to be on the panel precisely because it is so traditional – and always, always the Same, never the same! Now what is Familiar to Easter, such as the hare? No, it is the lamb, it tastes adorable, by the way, is from Ireland or new Zealand, and sometimes even German shepherds, and it is so produced as sustainably as clean. In Germany we don’t have to limit ourselves mostly to the sheep, lamb, there are the goats, lambs enough. Who gets but with a bit of luck, one, you should use it, but it be weaker flavor, because goat lamb tastes really delicate.

but What now to do with the sheep lamb? Who don’t want to fry the Whole on a spit, is faced with the choice: back, leg, or shoulder? Back or the thigh are more likely to be cooked in the strand, or as a roasting piece, the shoulder is suitable to burn anyway, gently, next to the preparation in the Whole for the pieces.

For the piecemeal approach is: The small piece of meat cooked the more of the caramel, the overall surface is, the more Gravy you get. The quality and quantity of the roasting principle is the Basis for the Success of the Sauce – much the Roast will be good.

in addition to cook Ragouts, without Stress, you can comfortably prepare and can forgive the intermediate Cooling, (not because of the later violent). Doucement, – stated in France, doucement before you go samtpfotig – nice and smooth and easy, so to speak.

To recommend Easter I a Ragout of lamb shoulder, tender to the bite, juicy in the mouth and aromatic on the nose that it makes the guest will be. Yes, says the guest, do with me what you want, so you me of the delicious lamb as give … Who would the say that twice?

From the Maghreb, especially from Morocco, the variant comes to cooking lamb meat in the Quartet, in harmony with the apricots, plums and spices. The dried fruits have the advantage that they can hold good and that they are flavor intense.

It shall be liable to the dried fruit/baked fruit with us the Odium of the Ältlichkeit, as well as the fact that one of its ingredients is the plum, is considered as a Laxative. I don’t give a damn. Also dried fruit was on the tree in a state of plump, Fresh, and full maturity before him, warm Stoves, deprived of so much moisture that the ever-more concentrated sugar content preserves it from now on. Back to the fruit during Cooking, moisture in the Form of meat juices, then suck it up immediately and are almost as plump as before. Well, it is not a tree Fresh, what you signed, but you are a deep-reaching flavor.

In Morocco, stews in clay vessels cooked in, called a tagine. You need them but not mandatory to achieve a good result.
