  13. NOTES : 'Gigot' is the French word for a leg of mutton and was adopted by the Scots during the days of the 'Auld (old) Alliance' with France. As part of the treaty all Scots became French citizens and all French people became citizens of Scotland. This concession was repealed at the beginning of the 20th century. This dish is traditionally cooked by boiling lamb or possibly mutton with carrots and turnips but the variation given here is delicious, especially for older meat.
