Mint Mint

Whilst this is usually referred to as a sauce, it is actually a flavoured vinegar. It is best made when you get a glut of mint in midsummer, ready to make mint sauce all year round.


  • Mint
  • Vinegar (Malt or cider vinegar are best)

Preserving the Mint in Vinegar

  1. Remove the mint from the stalks, wash the leaves then pat them dry.
  2. Pack them into jars, or bottles and add enough vinegar to cover
  3. Seal the bottles and store in a cool dark place. The vinegar is ready for using immediately, but will improve if left for a few weeks.

Making your Mint Sauce

Give the bottle a good shake, then add about a desert spoon of the vinegar and mint mixture, with 1tbs of boiling water per person and mix in a jug. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve.
