Slow-cooked lamb with spring veg and fresh mint sauce

The best roast lamb to share with the family. Spring veg goes so well with new season lamb. Peas and broad beans are harvested from April onwards, weather depending. Frozen will work just as well though. Make your own mint sauce, too – if you have some mint to hand, it's quick and easy, as well as being the best accompaniment to the lamb.
