Ok, Cookgirl – You asked for it. ... Lamb in Iceland is unlike any other I’ve ever tasted. While it’s the “staple meat” of our country, it has such a wonderful flavor & texture that’s impossible to describe adequately. Siggi & I usually grill a leg of lamb or oven roast it after trimming all excess fat & seasoning w/garlic, rosemary and seasoning salt. This unique recipe takes a different approach & is from my “Classic Scandinavian Cooking” cookbook by Nika Hazelton. The name says it all & the intro is brief. “The coffee, provided it is not overly strong, gives an excellent color to the meat & a subtle taste to the gravy.”
