    1                    Crown roast of lamb
                         -(2 or more ribs per person,
                         - depending on size)
    3                    Garlic cloves
                         - peeled & cut in slivers
      1/4   c            Olive oil -- -ÿÿ
    3       tb           Unsalted butter
    1       tb           Rosemary, fresh or dried
    2       ts           Freshly ground pepper
   12                    New potatoes -- peeled
                         - (allow 2-to-3 for
                         - each diner)
    1       tb           Salt
    1       bn           Watercress or curly parsley
                         - (for garnish)
   PREHEAT OVEN TO 450F. Make small incisions in the meaty part of the lamb
   every few inches and insert slivers of garlic if using it. Paint the meat
   well with olive oil or rub with softened butter. Sprinkle all over with
   rosemary and pepper. Crumple a ball of aluminum foil and stuff in the
   center. Place on a small rack and surround with the potatoes in a low
   roasting pan just large enough to hold it. Place in the oven and
   immediately turn the heat down to 400F. Roast until done, depending upon
   weight and size, about 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches
   140F. Remove the foil ball and immediately salt the meat. Remove to a
   warmed platter, and let rest 5-to-10 minutes before serving. If waiting
   longer, cover with foil to retain heat. To serve, place paper frills on the
   rib bones and fill the center with vegetables or stuffing, surround with
   potatoes and garnish with watercress or curly parsley. Any sauce would be
   served on the side. Makes 6 to 8 Servings
