Traditionally, lamb dishes are associated with spring weather, but with the increase in price over the years, meat has now become an expensive meal for any family.
Minced lamb is still reasonably priced and used with the lush mint that is springing up (no pun intended) and some zingy spices, a delicious meal can be created.
A great selection of new season's herbs are now available at local farmers' markets and wayside stalls up here in the Hills and mint is very easily grown in any home garden.
These may be prepared in advance and cooked at meal time. A stylish choice for an elegant BBQ picnic in one of our lovely Yarra Ranges parks or gardens, too!
