    Wow. This sounds great. I love lamb shanks but have never made them sweet and fruity this way. But I certainly will!

    This looks like a wonderful lamb recipe. We just love lamb and it's usually a holiday treat when we have it. I don't think we'll be waiting for a holiday because your recipe is so tempting. Thank you so much for a great 5 fork.
