There’s one rule of when you’re making a roast dinner where the centrepiece is Lamb. You have to have Mint Sauce. Have to. It’s the law. Or, if it’s not the law, then it should be the law. Plus it’s so quick and easy to make, there’s absolutely no reason to buy it when you can make your own. Mint grows so easily, that you can keep it in a pot on your kitchen windowsill to pick at any time and then make your own mint sauce on the day. Give it a try!
Mint SaucePrint Recipe
- 1 bunch of fresh mint
- 1tsp Salt
- 5tbsp Cider or White Wine Vinegar
- 4tbsp Boiling Water
- 1tbsp Caster Sugar
Strip the leaves off the stalks of mint, and chop very finely. If you're worried about your knife skills, place the leaves into a cup and then snip away with a pair of scissors until it's all nice and fine.
Put the mint into a bowl, and add the salt and sugar.
Add the cider or white vinegar to the bowl, and the pour over the boiling water.
Stir until the salt and sugar is dissolved.
Taste the sauce. If it's too sweet or too sour for your tastes, then add more sugar or vinegar accordingly.
Cover with cling film for a couple of hours to allow the flavours to develop.
That's it! Serve it with your favourite Lamb dish.
