While everyone has heard of piggies in a blanket, the Yellowlees have created a kind of lamb in a pastry blanket that has generated growing sales and attracted the interest of local retailers. Lamb meat is ground up, celery, carrots and several spices are added and the mixture is wrapped in white or whole wheat dough. The product can be microwaved or oven-baked.  It is currently sold at the Port Perry Farmers’ Market, at local events and through the Durham Farm Fresh Marketing Association.  It has been so successful that the Yellowlees are looking at expanding their kitchen facilities.
