Mint Sauce

Introduction & method

This is the classic accompaniment to roast lamb, and insanely easy to make.

Wash the mint and chop it as finely as you can. Put into a bowl and stir in the vinegar and sugar. Refrigerate for at least half an hour for the flavours to develop.

You can keep it in a jar in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
