Do you buy Mint Sauce for your roast lamb? Next time you have a jar in your hand, take a look at the ingredients.Make it yourself, and you’ll be able to pronounce every ingredient! :)
You can buy a bunch of mint to make your own sauce, but it is one of the easiest plants to grow being virtually indestructible (although do yourself a favour and keep it contained within a pot as it so invasive.)
When serving your roast lamb, mix a tablespoon or so of your mint sauce into the gravy too for an extra yummy treat.
- 1 bunch mint
- 2 teaspoons Apple cider or white wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- Hot water
- Strip the leaves from the mint & discard the stems. Chop finely with a sharp knife or pop in a food processor.
- Add the sugar and 2 teaspoons of vinegar. Blitz or stir well.
- Wait half an hour or so for the flavours to settle. Taste and adjust the flavour and consistency by adding more vinegar, sugar or a little hot water.
