This simple Mint Sauce recipe is quick and easy to prepare and uses fresh spearmint together with a few basic store cupboard ingredients. The perfect partner with slow roasted leg of Lamb.
Best prepared around 2 hours in advance which allows the vinegar to soften the leaves.
Spearmint is easy to grow at home.
- Approx 25 leaves of fresh Spearmint
- 1½ tsp Demerara Sugar
- Approx 10-20 ml Malt Vinegar to taste
Step 1 – Pick off the leaves individually and discard the stalks
Step 2 – Wash the mint leaves then roughly chop them, adding the Demerara sugar as you cut to blend in the sugar with the mint
Step 3 – Place the chopped mint and sugar into a small serving bowl
Step 4 – Add approximately 10-20ml Malt Vinegar and mix together. It should be enough to cover the mint
Step 5 – Chill in the fridge until ready to serve
