Have the butcher cut away the skin from the racks, then trim the meat from the tops of the bones and have this chopped to use for the stuffing.
Weigh the racks to calculate cooking time.
Then have the end bone of each rack sewed around, so that the racks are attached.
Bend the racks round, stitching the ends together around the bones to form a crown.
Tie the crown with kitchen string to hold the shape.
Place the crown in a greased roasting pan.
Heat the oven to 300Â°F.
Mix together some of the chopped lamb with the rest of the stuffing ingredients to just fill the crown.
Combine the remaining ingredients and rub this evenly over the meat.
Roast for 30 minutes a pound and serve with a mixed curly endive salad.
