Last weekend we happened on the Farmer's Market in Newbury, completely by chance. Some serious meat and free bones. Happy!
Yesterday's supper, a 1.3kg breast of mutton. I just stuck it in the Chicken Brick with two small potatoes and two small parsnips (chopped and posted in to the space around the meat). I added some beef dripping to get the veggies started before enough fat melted out of the mutton to start them roasting properly. Sprinkled salt over the lot. Stuck the whole thing in to a fan assisted oven at 150 deg C for 2 and a quarter hours. It was good. The junkfood was the cauliflower we ate with it.
The Chicken Brick.
For afters we had cheesecake. The cake base was 200g nuts chopped in a blender, solidified with 50g butter and sweetened with 25g honey. Junk food; a layer of blueberries. Cheese part was a 50:50 mix of Mascarpone and creme fraiche, a capful of vanilla and 25g honey. Topping was a 100g bar of 70% cocoa chocolate melted. Boil 100ml of cream, mix with the chocolate and throw in 25g butter. Stir until even, allow to cool slightly and pour on while still liquid enough to be self leveling. Stick it in the fridge and wait while the mutton digests enough to leave some room, then eat.
It's quite nice. You can always adjust sweetness to taste/carb limits. I didn't count anything with this!
