 Calories & fat go from 629 cals & 37g fat to 316 cals & 15g fat.  Dramatic decease in sodium, too.
 I think the recipe would be great for a feast and could even use a pork roast instead of lamb.

This is a period recipe I can get behind!  Where can I find the original, or the reference to its source.  If this one is there, I might find some other gems that combine fruit and lamb similarly.  It's almost like some dried fruit and meat stuff in Two Fifteenth Century Cookery Bokes (Harlein manuscript), but the lamb rack and dijon mustard throw me in recognizing the source.  Given ambiguities of most medieval recipes and measurements, making a lower fat version could work out great.
