This delightful cured and smoked lamb leg borrows its flavor profile from the Levant, with heady notes of citrus, pepper, and rose petals. It can be eaten warm or cold.
Ingredients: Massa Organics pastured lamb leg, Celtic sea salt, honey, orange zest, brown mustard seeds, dried rose petals, cinnamon, black peppercorns, fenugreek, coriander seeds, curing salt (sodium chloride and sodium nitrite)*, turmeric powder
Recipe is gluten-free, dairy-free, nightshade-free and GAPS Diet-friendly.
*We use nitrite because there is evidence that a small amount of sodium nitrite is healthier than a large amount of so-called natural vegetable-based nitrate such as celery powder, which can convert to toxic nitrosamines in the body.
