Lamb with Pomegranetes and Honey

This dish is from Simple by Diana Henry. It is perfectly spiced and the mint and Pom seeds add a nice contrast. Serve on warmed flat bread.

For the lamb:
4 lb lamb
9 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
Salt
Leaves from a small bunch of mint
4½ tbsp pomegranate molasses 
4½ tbsp honey
4 tbsp olive oil
Juice from 4 lemons
To serve:
1 pomegranate
Leaves from a small bunch of mint
4 garlic cloves, crushed
1 3/4 c Greek yogurt
Flatbreads or cooked couscous 

Pierce deep holes all over the lamb. In a mortar, make a marinade: crush the garlic to a paste with the salt, then add the other ingredients, starting with the mint, and pound some more.

Place lamb in a large bowl. Pour on the marinade, turning the lamb over to coat it. Cover and put in the fridge for about 12 hours.

Return the lamb to room temperature and place in a slow cooker and cook covered for 8 hours. Pull the foil over the lamb and seal to form a tent. The lamb is cooked when you can pull the meat apart with a fork.

Mix the pomegranate seeds with the mint, then add the garlic to the yogurt. Shred the lamb at the table and serve with the yogurt, pomegranate and mint, plus flatbreads or couscous and a salad.

Serves 6 – 8
