Fresh Mint Sauce

  • Servings : 4
  • Prep Time : 30m
  • Ready In : 60m

Mint is one of those herbs that grows so easily that there is just no point in buying it. A word of warning though, if you do buy a mint plant my advice is to put it in its own pot/container because if not, it will likely take over your garden!

I love mint sauce on pork pies & mushy peas, meat & potato pie and of course with most lamb dishes…And don’t forget, having your own plant means you’ve always got the Pimms covered!


  • A Bunch of Mint
  • 4 tbsp Salt
  • 4 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Level tbsp Caster Sugar
  • A Pinch of Salt


Step 1

Strip off the mint leaves, sprinkle with the salt then finely chop

Step 2

Place in to your serving bowl and add the sugar & boiling water – stir and leave to cool

Step 3

Once cooled stir in the vinegar

Step 4

Add more vinegar, water or salt to adjust the seasoning to your taste

I just like cooking great food..
