So WHY (and how) do you cook lamb?
Recently, we asked some of our followers if they had ever cooked with lamb before, and the majority said they had actually NEVER used lamb in their kitchen. Don't worry! If you've never cooked with lamb before, this spring is the perfect time to try it.
We came up with our favorite 3 reasons why you should start using lamb in your kitchen! Click HERE to check out our half lamb bundle.
1. Lamb will inspire you to cook some DELICIOUS recipes: Did you know that lamb is the second-most popular meat worldwide (following goat)?! In several countries across the Middle East, Asia, Africa, and the Pacific, people eat lamb frequently (up to 20 lbs. per person each year, compared to just 1 lb. per person in the U.S.). This means there are SO MANY fabulous recipes to choose from when it comes to cooking lamb in your own kitchen, such as Slow Grilled Leg of Lamb with Mint Yogurt, Moroccan Lamb Shanks with Pomegranate, Shawarma Leg of Lamb, and Spiced Lamb Hand Pies.
2. Lamb has LOADS of health benefits: lamb is high in iron, packed with good fats like Omega-3's, and loaded with protein. Just 3 oz of lamb contains 23g of protein! Lamb also tends to be lower in fat and calories than other types of meat. Plus, lamb from Foxhollow Farm is always raised on 100% grass and never given antibiotics or added hormones.

3. Lamb is sure to IMPRESS your family and friends: Let's face it -- lamb is snazzy. A rack of lamb out on the dinner table? Lambs chops for two with a fresh springtime salad? A whole leg of lamb you can shave off for holiday dinner? Stuffed pitas for a picnic in the park? Ground lamb burgers with feta and heirloom tomatoes?
Regardless of how you prepare it, lamb levels up your cooking game. Guests will be sure to "ooooh" and "aaaah" even though you barely put in any extra work.
