Add Lamb on Mint Makes Delightful Holiday Roast By GAYNOK MADDOX NEA Food and Markets Kill tor Yesterday at lunch with Ted Saucier we discussed something different for a holiday dinner. Lamb on fresh mint was his suggestion. Ted Saucier, author of "Bottoms Up," a handsomely made book of 800 recipes for punches and mixed drinks, gourmet and fabulous publicist, gave us his method. First, Ret lots of fresh mint. Many grocers carry it year round. Select R large leg of lamb. Salt it and sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper. Place in large roast- ing pan. Next pour exactly 3 tablespoons of white Vinegar over the larnb. Roast in preheated oven at 350 degrees P. Drain liquid from can of small white onions. IS fresh onions are used, parboil them and save the water. As the juices in pan dry, pour more onion water over lamb. Ilufiht for about 3 hours, adding more onion water to prevent burning in pan. Three qua rtere of an hour before lamb will be done, place the little white onioas in pan. They will roast to a lovely golden brown and become unbelievably flavorful. You might add small white potatoes, too, to roast in the pan Juices. Cover large platter with bed of fresh mint. What a fragrance! Place roast lamb on top and surround with the onions and roasted potatoes, Place roasting pan with lamb drippings over high heat on top of stove. Pour 2 glasses water into pan and scrape drippings from bot- torn. Bring u> boil for a minute. Serve in hot gravy boat or bowl. Tart currant jelly and baby canned peas go with this dinner and a real French salad consisting of tender Boston lettuce, endive, sourgrass if available, and, a dressing made of olive oil and wine vinegar. We were in the Men's Grill at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Ted had a large bowl filled with fresh salad greens, shrimp, crab hunks, and pieces of lobster with a light French dressing. We had chicken livers and bacon broiled on a skewer and served on a bed of spinach.
