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.
