Rack of lamb
2 Cups pomegranate juice
150g prunes
Olive oil
2 White onions
Cinnamon stick
Half a cup date honey
Peeled garlic
Half a cup pomegranate concentrate

Clean the lamb chops of excess fat and leave the bone exposed.
Soak the ribs overnight in marinade made of olive oil, crushed garlic, thyme, rosemary leaves and pomegranate concentrate.
On the next day, smoke the ribs in applewood smoke for two hours at 100ºc. (those who don’t have a smoker, can skip this step).
Fry strips of white onion with a cinnamon stick in a pot, add prunes and fry until the onions are golden. Add 2 cups of pomegranate juice, date honey and pomegranate concentrate. Season with salt and pepper, reduce until half the amount of liquid is left.
Arrange the chops in a deep tray, pour the pomegranate and prunes glaze over them.
Cover the tray with foil and bake for 1.5 hours at 180ºc.
Remove the foil and bake for another ten minutes at high heat until a caramelized layer is created.
Serving: slice the chops and serve with gravy and caramelized prunes.
