Get ahead

Step 1: For the stuffing, put a high-sided roasting tray (25cm x 30cm) on medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Step 2: Squeeze the sausagemeat out of the skins straight into the pan, breaking it up with the back of a spoon.

Step 3: Let the sausage start to crisp up, stirring occasionally, then tear in the sage leaves.

Step 4: Trim the fennel, peel the onions, then roughly chop both, add to the tray, and cook on medium heat for 20 minutes, or until soft and caramelized, stirring occasionally.

Step 5: Pour in the wine and let it completely cook away, then season to perfection, tasting and tweaking.

Step 6: Chop the bread into 2cm chunks and stir in, then turn the heat off and leave to cool completely.

Step 7: Lay out the lamb on a clean work surface.

Step 8: Scrunch and spread the cold stuffing all over the meat, then roll it up, sealing the filling inside (if any falls out, just poke it back in at the ends once tied up).

Step 9: Cut yourself eight 60cm lengths of string, slide them underneath the lamb at regular intervals, then tie them up at the top.

Step 10: Wipe out the tray, chuck in the lamb bones, break apart and add the unpeeled garlic bulb, then sit the lamb on top.

Step 11: Cover and refrigerate overnight.

On the day

Step 12: Preheat the oven to full whack (240°C/475°F/gas 9).

Step 13: Get the lamb tray out of the fridge, rub the meat with a little olive oil, place it in the oven, and turn the temperature down to 150ºC.

Step 14: Roast for 4 hours, or until tender, basting every hour with the tray juices and adding a splash of water each time.

Step 15: Remove from the oven and transfer the lamb to a serving platter. Cover with tin foil and a clean tea towel, and leave to rest for 1 hour.

Step 16: Use a spoon to skim the fat off the tray of bones (save it in a jar for tasty cooking another day).

Step 17: Put the tray over medium heat on the hob and stir in the flour, jam and a swig of red wine vinegar, scraping up all the sticky bits from the base of the tray.

Step 18: Cook for a couple of minutes, then pour in 1.2 litres of water. Let it simmer on a low heat to the consistency of your liking, stirring occasionally.

Step 19: Pass the gravy through a sieve into a pan and season to perfection, tasting and tweaking.

Step 20: Simmer on the lowest heat until needed.

To serve:

Step 21: Uncover the lamb, spooning any resting juices into the gravy.

Step 22: Cut away the string, then spoon over the Green sauce.

Step 23: Take it to the table, ready to carve in front of your guests.
