Serves 4, 20 -30 minutes preparation

Homemade mint sauce is the ideal accompaniment to roast lamb as it helps cut through the richness of the meat.

  • 4 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 level tbsp caster sugar


  1. Wash the mint under cold running water then strip off the mint leaves, sprinkle with salt and chop finely.
  2. Place the chopped mint into a jug, add the sugar and pour over the boiling water, stir and leave to cool.
  3. Stir in the vinegar and taste then serve with your roasted lamb joint.
  4. Add more water or vinegar and adjust seasoning to suit your taste.
