Cider and Honey Baked Spring Lamb

I think there's something rather lovely about a new season piece of lamb, slowly cooked with a few ingredients, allowing the lamb to shine

This recipe is about as simple as you can get to be honest, this isn't my recipe, I have always been a huge fan of Mr Keith Floyd, absolutely wonderful to watch, totally and utterly passionate about everything he did, this was a recipe he did many many years ago, So this is my nod to him, Sadly missed, but by crikey, what a legend
