Lamb Chops with a Red Raspberry Sauce

Ingredients

1 head of garlic (cloves cleaned but whole)

2 Tbsp Olive Oil

1 tsp fennel seeds (toasted with the garlic)

1 tsp pink peppercorns (left whole)

1/4 Cup chicken stock

1/2 tsp dried thyme

1/4 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/8 tsp white pepper

1 tsp dried savory

1/2 Cup Red Raspberries

To make this sauce into a marinade:

1/4 Cup Olive Oil

1/2 Cup red wine

2 Tbsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

 

Directions

  • Heat the olive oil in a small sauce pan. Add the garlic cloves and fennel seeds. Cook until the garlic is nicely toasted.
  • Add the chicken stock and pink peppercorns and allow to simmer for a minute or two.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and puree in a blender or a food processor.

This sauce could be made ahead and pureed and kept in the refrigerator and heated when needed!
