Grilled Lamb T-bones with Herb Jelly
- 2 teaspoons chopped lemon zest
- 2 teaspoons chopped garlic
- 2 tablespoons whole black peppercorns
- 8 (6-ounce) lamb T-bones
- Farmstand Herb Jelly, recipe follows
- Farmstand Herb Jelly:
- 4 sprigs mint, like pineapple, apple, or chocolate mint, plus 10 leaves
- 1 sprig rosemary
- 1 1/2 cups white wine verjus
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- Pinch salt
- 2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin
Preheat a grill.
In a spice grinder, process the lemon zest, garlic, and peppercorns to make a dry rub. Transfer to a bowl. Lightly salt and rub the lemon spice onto both sides of the T-bones. Grill the T-bones to desired temperature, about 1 1/2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove from the grill and serve immediately with the Herb Jelly.Farmstand Herb Jelly:
In a medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid, combine the mint sprigs, rosemary, verjus, sugar, and salt. Bring just to a boil. Set aside, covered, to steep until the herbs flavor the liquid, about 30 minutes. Strain the liquid and discard the herbs. Pour 1/4 cup of the infused liquid into a bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the surface and set aside to let it "bloom" for about 5 minutes. Reheat the remaining liquid and whisk it into the gelatin mixture until evenly dissolved.
Pour the verjus mixture into a small gratin dish and refrigerate until thickened and almost set about, 20 minutes. Chiffonade the mint leaves, and stir into the aspic. Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes more. Yield: about 1 1/2 cups
