    Zurie's Note:

    No roast lamb is quite perfect without home-made mint sauce on the side! Mint is a wonderful herb which aids digestion. (As an aside: the leaves can safely be steeped in boiling water like tea leaves, and a little added to colicky babies' bottles: works like a charm). This very simple mint sauce keeps in the fridge forever. When you have fresh garden mint, don't be without this condiment.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Have a large enough, clean glass jar with lid ready. Rinse the mint, and shake or pat dry, but water on the leaves are fine.
    2. 2
      Strip the leaves off the hard stems. Usually the soft tips can be used as is.
    3. 3
      On a cutting board put bunches together, and slice thinly with a sharp knife.
    4. 4
      Measure by packing tightly into the cup measure.
    5. 5
      Alternately, snip finely with kitchen scissors.
    6. 6
      Put the sliced mint in a jug with a pouring lip, and add the vinegar and sugar. Stir well.
    7. 7
      Do not use the sharp spirit or other white vinegar. Apple cider vinegar is healthy and white vinegars are not.
    8. 8
      I find that using sugar and vinegar on a 50-50 basis usually gives the right tang, but do taste and tweak! Do not worry about the amount of sugar: you use only about 1 dessertspoon of the sauce as a serving.
    9. 9
      Ladle or pour the lot into a large enough bottle. The sugar will take time to dissolve, so can be kept on the kitchen counter and shaken a few times, before it goes to the fridge.
    10. 10
      If the mint gets used up and there's quite a bit of the vinegar-sugar still left in the bottle, simply slice more fresh mint and add.
    11. 11
      (The mint will lose its fresh green colour to an extent, which is normal).
