Roast leg of lamb with pomegranate and herb sauce and crisp potatoes

all details

Buy large bright shiny fruit that is smooth and feels heavy for its size. Avoid any with dull, wrinkled skin and check the crown - there should be no signs of rot and the skin should not be broken. Pomegranates will keep for several weeks in the fridge. When hairline cracks appear in the skin, the fruit is perfectly ripe.
