Honey Roasted Leg of Goat

This is what we are having tonight. Hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Ingredients:
1 leg of goat/chevon
1/2 cup of honey
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tlbs. brown sugar
salt and pepper

Directions:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place leg of goat on a rack in a shallow baking pan, season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. While this is baking mix the honey, OJ, and brown sugar. Aftter 30 minutes remove the foil from the chevon and baste on both sides with the honey glaze. Place back in the oven, uncovered, for another 60-90 minutes depending on how done you want it. I usually re-glaze/baste about every 20 minutes to keep the meat moist and to get a nice glaze on it. You don't want to cook chevon past medium otherwise it is too dry. This goes really well with couscous and a green salad. Enjoy.
