Leg of Lamb in Marsala Wine (1965)

  • 1 6-8-lb leg of lamb
  • 1 cup California Marsala wine
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tspns salt
  • 1/2 tspn freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tspn marjoram
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
Cut 5 or 6 deep gashes, crosswise, in leg of lamb, to the bone.  With mortar and pestle, grind the onion, garlic, pepper and salt.  Add marjoram and rosemary; crush.  Moisten with a little Marsala wine.

Stuff mixture into gashes.  Distribute evenly, and rub in.  Bake in slow oven (300 degrees) about 30 to 35 minutes per pound.  

After the first 2 hours, baste every 30 minutes with remaining Marsala wine.  Serves 6 to 8.
