Preheat oven to 220°C.With the leg in a roasting tray, score the skin and massage ever so lovingly with salt. Throw in the carrots, celery, onion and garlic and roast for 35 minutes. Slosh in the wine, then bung in the lavender, thyme and bay leaves. Seal the tray with a double layer of foil and cook for another 30 minutes. Reduce the temperature  to 140°C and cook for five hours. Unseal, and reveal the magic. Magnificent paired with tatties.
