Notes about this recipe

    Delicious and very forgiving on the time. It ended up on the stove for over 3 hours yet still emerged glossy, succulent and very tasty. The combination of saffron, honey and the marinade made a nice change to roasting a leg with rosemary and garlic. Highly recommended and I will make it again.
