  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp peppercorns
  • 1 tsp pickling spices
  • 1 tsp salt

Bring pickling liquid to a boil over medium heat, once sugar is dissolved and it starts to boil, add in mushrooms. Gently simmer until tender.  Remove from heat and cool.

BLUEBERRY BALSAMIC SAUCE:

  • 2 inch knob of grated fresh ginger

Place all ingredients into a saucepan and reduce on medium heat. Once reduced down to half remove from heat and cool, leaving the berries whole.

Preheat oven to 350. Season rack of lamb on all sides with salt and pepper. Over med-high heat (in cast iron pan if you have it) sear the rack on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side.  Remove from pan and place on baking tray and toss in the oven for 20 minutes for a medium-rare cook, bake longer if desired. Once done, remove from oven and cover to rest for least 5 minutes before serving.

FENNEL:

Cut fennel bulb from top to bottom in 3-4 large slabs, ensuring the layers are still attached to the bottom to keep it held together. In pan used for searing lamb, over a low-medium heat,  place slabs of fennel face down and pan roast on stovetop, flipping occasionally until brown and tender.
