handfuls of mint leaves
1Wash and shake the mint leaves, sprinkle then with the sugar and chop them rather finely.
2Put in a bowl and heat the vinegar and pour it over the mint.
3Add more sugar if you think the sauce is too sharp.
4Serve hot or cold with roasted lamb or other meat.
5Alternatives: Use lemon juice instead of vinegar and you can also add a little olive oil.
6This is not traditional mint sauce, being much less violent in flavor, but it is exceptionally good.
