RACK OF LAMB

Rack of Lamb (Rib Roast)

Rack of lamb is the equivalent of a standing rib roast of beer. It is the portion from which rib chops are cut.
 

'The American Frugal Housewife' by Lydia Maria Child (1836) was “Dedicated to Those Who Are Not Ashamed of Economy.” 
Remember this excerpt next time you see Rack of Lamb for $10 to $15 per pound:
 

Frenched Rack of Lamb

“That part of mutton called the rack...is cheap food. It is not more that four or five cents a pound; and four pounds will make a dinner for six people...If your family be small, a rack of mutton will make you two dinners....”
