  American Lamb

1 cup chicken stock
2 carrots, peeled and shredded
1 zucchini, shredded
1 onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 medium orange, peeled, seeded and chopped in small pieces, peel grated
3 cups dried whole wheat bread cubes
1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tsp. dried sage
1 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. dried mint
2 racks of lamb, 8 ribs each, French cut, well trimmed
kitchen string
2 Tbs. orange juice concentrate, thawed

Preheat oven to 375F. Bring chicken stock to a boil in a nonreactive saucepan. Stir in next 4 ingredients. Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and stir in orange peel, orange chunks and next 6 ingredients. Toss to mix well. If too dry, add extra stock. Do not overmix. On broiler pan grid, press 2 racks together so bones interlock at top. Tie if necessary. Fill center with stuffing. Brush each rack with orange juice concentrate. Roast 30 minutes per pound or until a meat thermometer registers 1500F. Turn oven off and let racks rest 5 minutes in oven.
