Hades Honey Glazed Rack of Lamb!!!

This Recipe requires a good amount of heat, therefore, you may want to grill the lamb over very hot coals or oven broil or convection bake at 500 degrees!
Start by preheating your oven; while you wait you may prepare the glaze.

In a sauce pan, mix 1/4 cup Apple Cider, 2 tspn Hades Honey; 4 tspn Brown Sugar
Mix ingredients over low heat until sugar and jelly is dissolved.

This recipe uses 1 Rack of Lamb (make sure that the meat is room temperature before cooking)

Rub the lamb with olive oil, salt, pepper, and the juice of 1 lemon

Sear the Lamb, bone side up first.
Once seared, leave bone side down and baste often until well caramelized.
Cooking Time 15-25 Minutes!

Use a meat thermometer to determine the desired amount of cooking:
125 degrees - Medium Rare
165 degrees - Well Done

Once you have cooked the lamb be sure to let the meat rest 15 or so minutes before cutting the meat to ensure the natural juices don't run out onto the plate.  This also allows the meat to finish cooking while it cools.

For Thanksgiving! Try HH Rutabaga!!

If you have never tried a Rutabaga, prepare for a taste treat!  The Rutabaga originated as a cross between cabbage and turnips; the flavor is milder than both.  If prepared properly, the color is bright yellow!  This will look beautiful on your holiday plate!  So to make this savory treat the Hades Honey way, do as follows:

Peel and dice the Rutabaga in bite size (one inch or so squares)

Prepare a sufficiently deep pan or pot with a spray of cooking oil or "Pam"
Fill pan or pot with enough water to just cover the Rutabaga
Add 1 tablespoon of sugar per cup of Rutabaga
Add 1 tablespoon of butter per cup of Rutabaga
Salt and Pepper to taste
One teaspoon of Hades Honey per cup of Rutabaga

Thoroughly mix the ingredients and then add the Rutabaga

Cover pot or pan and bring to a simmer; cook until fork tender

Serve on plate with a slotted spoon to drain the liquid

*Chef Tommy's Advice
If planning on holding the Rutabaga for more than 1 hour, add a teaspoon of Turmeric to preserve the yellow color of the Rutabaga.  Otherwise your vegetable may turn gray while waiting on guests.

If you have dietary restrictions, you may use sweetener to substitute for sugar and "I can't believe its not butter" for the butter.  The only sugar will come from Hades Honey and the vegetable.
