Yep, I found lamb shoulder at the supermarket I shop at almost every day. It was easy -- all I had to do was just going to one part of the meat section where I usually pay no attention to. Haha... just like that.
Today, this lamb shoulder -- the very first lamb shoulder ever in my kitchen -- was rubbed with minced garlic, rosemary, crushed black pepper and olive oil, and left in the fridge for more than three hours. Then it was fried in the frying pan.
Oh, and the jelly! When I tasted it beforehand, I felt the sweetness of the apple and refreshing minty taste almost at the same time, then a slight tanginess followed. It was something I'd never tasted before and I instantly fell in love with it. But I thought the taste of the greasy lamb may be overpowering and hide the delicate flavor of the jelly. So I made mint jelly sauce by adding a little vinegar and some chopped fresh mint leaves to the jelly (I got this idea from some recipe sites), hoping it will give more refreshing flavor to the meat. It did!!
Viva blogging! It has broadened my culinary horizon again. And my heartfelt thanks to those who made it happen -- those who gave me the jelly, those who made suggestions and those who were quiet but expecting me to go the whole way. ;)
(But the lamb was a bit tough... And after removing the fat, there wasn't much left to eat, to be honest.)
