Lamb with apricots and honey


2 kilo of lamb meat (loin or shoulder) cut into portions
150 gr. dried apricots
Juice of two oranges
1 tablespoon grain mustard
1 tablespoon honey
Salt, pepper, olive oil

Cooking Instructions

Soak the apricots in orange juice until they soften. Sprinkle the meat with salt and pepper and sauté it in a pot until golden. Add mustard, honey and 5-6 mashed apricots and let simmer for approximately an hour and half. At the very end add the rest of the apricots.
On the island of Crete locals love their honey. They sprinkle it over cheese, either graviera or anthotyro, over baked meat and on their fried myzithra cheese-pies.
