Just after Christmas

We bought a reduced in price leg of lamb. DB sawed the bottom third (hock) off and we had that for a meal between us plus some soup from the bones and bits.

The rest of the leg had its bone removed and was frozen. Yesterday after thawing, it was cubed into two bowls:
The bowl on the left made us a stew for lunch, which was yummy having so much meat it it, I forgot to take a picture.

The bowl on the right was minced, using my new 8mm blade for a more chunky texture:
and I made two Shepherds Pies, using dried potato that was made with hot milk and melted butter:


One for tonight and one for the freezer. There is little difference in taste with real mashed potato when made this way.

  2. Looks yummy, I love lamb, it's my favourite meat. I quite often use dried mash for topping pies, it freezes well and tastes fine when mixed with butter, herbs and cheese.

    1. We love it but only as a treat as it’s so expensive even on offer.

  3. Good use for dehydrated potatoes. I'll have to give that a try with the veg crumbles I've got in the freezer. Thanks for the idea.
