A Simpler Spring As predicted, we can already see the signs of an early Spring and there is nothing more magical than Spring in the Lowcountry. There is sound of birds chirping, the sudden bloom of flowers, azaleas bright and fiercely colored with beautiful hues of pink, red, white and purple. The overwhelming fragrance of blooming flowers makes you pause and appreciate thoughts of a simpler time when life wasn’t so busy. It is sometimes hard to remember when we weren't always in a hurry to get somewhere or sometimes, like me, in a hurry going nowhere. The weather is perfect, comfortable days with a warm breeze and beautiful moonlit evenings…the kind of days that make my northern relatives envious of where I live. Spring in the Low Country is a time when you can stop, look, listen, smell and take advantage of what others often wish they had.

Grilled Lamb Chops 4 (1" thick) lamb chops 1/4 c. olive oil 3 tbsp. lemon juice 1/3 c. stuffed olives, chopped 1 clove garlic, crushed

DIRECTIONS: Place chops in shallow dish. Combine oil, lemon, olives and seasonings. Pour over lamb chops. Marinate in refrigerator overnight, turning once. Grill until desired degree of doneness. Heat marinade in saucepan and pour over chops before serving.

Leg of Lamb Dijon 1 boneless leg of lamb (4 to 5 pounds) 1 cup Dijon mustard 1/2 cup soy sauce 2 tablespoons olive oil 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. oregano 1/4 tsp. basil 1/8 tsp. pepper

1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed 1 teaspoon ground ginger 1 garlic clove, minced

DIRECTIONS: Cut leg of lamb horizontally from one long side to within 1 in. of opposite side. Open meat so it lies flat; trim and discard fat. Place lamb in a large resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, whisk the mustard, soy sauce, oil, lemon and seasonings. Pour 1 cup of marinade over lamb but reserve the rest. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade. Remove from and discard marinade. Using longhandled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Prepare grill for indirect heat using a drip pan. Place lamb over drip pan and grill, covered, over medium-low heat for 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 hours or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing. Warm reserved mustard sauce; serve with lamb. Yield: 9 servings.

Irish Stew 3 pounds lamb shoulder with a little fat, cubed 1/2 cup flour 3 large russet potatoes, peeled & cubed 3 large carrots, peeled and sliced 6 stalks celery, cut into 1/2" slices 2 large yellow onions, cut into large dice 3 - 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 bunch fresh rosemary

1 bunch fresh thyme 1 bunch fresh parsley 2 quarts lamb or beef stock, or as needed 12 ounces Guinness stout 1 cup pearl barley 2 teaspoons corn starch salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS: Cook barley for 20 minutes in 3 cups of lamb or beef stock and set aside. Cut off some of the parsley leaves and chop enough to make 2 tablespoons; reserve. Cut off some parsley stems, and tie them into a bundle with a few sprigs of rosemary and thyme; reserve. Season the meat with salt and brown the meat in a little oil. Remove and reserve, sprinkling with a little flour, shaking off excess. Add the onions, garlic, carrots and celery to the pan and sauté, tossing to coat with the fat. Add the Guinness and deglaze, scraping up any caramelized meat juices. Add the potatoes and barley, return the meat to the pot. Add enough stock to barely cover, cook over medium heat until just boiling, then reduce heat to very low and simmer 2 - 3 hours, until the meat is tender, stirring occasionally. Check seasonings, add salt and pepper to taste, then remove from heat, stir in parsley and the cornstarch (mixed into 4 teaspoons water) and stir. Cook over low heat for a few more minutes to thicken. Serve with plenty of Irish brown or white soda bread.
