Spring ~ a season of birth, growth and learning.
Fibers ~ spinning and knitting them together.
We breed the sheep, the ewes have lambs
that jump and play, then they grow out lustrous wool for us to use.
We plant the seeds that grow tall and healthy to give us pleasure in our
gardens and food on the table.
So continues the CYCLE OF LIFE at Mt. Bruce Station. We invite you to join
us for a day in the country and learn how you can also be part of this
heritage of the land and fibers and help pass it along to others and future

Farm Raised Lamb ...
for the Sunday
The perfect cut is a rack of lamb, of course.
Original Recipe By: Yvonne Uhlianuk of Mt. Bruce
Rack of Lamb with Fresh Plum & Ginger Marinade
* 1 lamb rack, 8 ribs, approx. 1 1/2 lbs. trimmed weight
* 10 oz. red plums (3 medium)
* 3 Tb. onion, finely minced
* 1/2 tsp. fresh ginger root, peeled & finely minced
* 1/2 cayenne pepper (fresh or dried), finely minced, approx. 1/8 tsp.
* 1/4 c. damson plum or plain white vinegar
* 3 whole allspice berries, cracked
* 2 Tb. plum or red currant jelly
* 2 Tb. olive oil
Directions: Lightly score the back of rack in a diamond
pattern without penetrating skin.
Pit plums and cut each into 8 wedges: combine with all
remaining ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until plums
are finely minced. Coat rack well on all sides with this mixture and let
marinate at room temperature 2 hours, turning and basting 4 times. Use a
rubber spatula or wooden spoon to gently scrape off marinate and reserve it.
Have fire at 450 and grill surface 4" from coals. Sear
meat for 2 minutes bone side down. 2 minutes fat side down and 2 minutes on
end to seal and brown all sides.
Spread fire apart or move meat to lower heat section,
or raise grill to 6" from flame to reduce temperature to 350 . Put meat bone
side down and spread half the reserved marinade over it. Cook 8 minutes.
Turn rack fat side down and spread with remaining marinade. Cook another 10
minutes. Let rest 10 minutes then carve. Meat should be rare to medium rare.
