However, the item I was most excited about was the small lamb heart I purchased from the Canreg Station Farm and Pasture.
|No bigger than the size of my fist, I was excited to prepare this little gem.|
Probably not the best choice, because those flavours are very strong and could overpower the delicate lamb, but the sprouts looked amazing in the store, and well...bacon makes everything better.
I minced the lamb heart and mixed it with olive oil, red wine vinegar, lemon zest, salt, hot peppers (from my garden...yay!) and parsley. It turned out being a little spicier than I planned, but still good none the less. I toasted some multigrain baguette to eat the tartare with, and tried to plate it up all pretty and such.
Here is the finished product....
So, I think it turned out pretty good...but then again, I'll eat anything. Next time I would lay off the peppers a little and I would try to remember ALL the ingredients I bought. (I had some capers I planned on using as well...) I'll be back at the market next Saturday to buy another little heart, and will probably try a grilled preparation next.
For now...I need to figure out what to do with the other random meats in my freezer....
