    Hope they turned out well, Jayne! I’ve made these a couple of times, most recently when my mother and aunt were over from Ireland and Mum has been pestering the butcher at home to get her some lamb shanks ever since – they’re not so easy to pick up in Ireland, apparently. I’d better take advantage of them while I’m still here!
