National Roast Leg of Lamb Day Date in the current year: May 7, 2016

National Roast Leg of Lamb Day May 7 is National Roast Leg of Lamb Day. Today you could make any kind of dish, but we recommend you roast lamb, as far as this is the best way to cook it.

Domestic sheep were considered as the most productive livestock during the Middle Ages. The animals could supply people with wool for cloths, milk for butter and cheese, skins for parchments and meat. Lamb, mutton and hogget are the meat of a domestic sheep. The difference of the meat is not only in its name, everything depends on the age of the sheep. Young sheep in its first year is lamb. This is the most tender and lean meat. The meat of a juvenile sheep older than 1 year, but before its first shearing, is hogget. And mutton is the meat of an old sheep.

Roasted leg of lamb often appears on tables in some Western countries. If you want to make the best roasted leg, then cover it with rosemary, thyme, oregano and lemon zest. Roast lamb leg for 2 hours at 360 degrees and serve it with carrots or green vegetables and gravy. You can also make a stuffed leg of lamb, that would be something extra special for this holiday.
