This classic condiment is a little sweet, and a little tart, from vinegar. It's truly delicious over fresh new potatoes and lamb, perhaps next to a bit of horseradish sauce.
D.I.Y. Mint Sauce
about 1/2 cup
2 cups loosely packed fresh mint leaves
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon white sugar
1/2 cup boiling water
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
Chop the mint leaves very fine. Sprinkle the salt and sugar over them, then pour in the boiling water. Let it sit until cool, then stir in the vinegar. Taste and adjust vinegar, salt and sugar as needed.
