This is the best leg of lamb I have ever made - or eaten. It's roasted slowly and gets very tender. With the potatoes roasted with the lamb and the soup made ahead, this Easter Dinner is very little work. If you want a faster-cooking Leg of Lamb try Lamb with Garlic or Lamb on Potatoes.

This is started hot, to brown the crust, then finished slowly. It remains a lovely rose when sliced... and the crust is fantastic.... The best lamb I've had. This will easily serve 4 - 6. Add more potatoes. Get a larger leg (and more potatoes) to serve more.

Normally, I just do this with fresh, snipped chives, but, as long as I had the green garlic, why not? Use chives if you don't have it. Be careful not to cook the asparagus too long, it should be just tender when pierced with a knife. Lay asparagus flat to peel, as it tend to snap easily.
