Mint sauce is a fantastic condiment traditionally used on roast lamb, however, you can also use it on roasted vegetables and roasted chicken.
This is a vinegar-based sauce that is easily made with a combination of malt and white vinegar along with a lot of fresh mint. The acid pairs well with fatty meats which is how it traditionally became paired with lamb.
If you grow mint this is a great choice for preserving and using year-round. Once made, because of the vinegar’s high acid content, it can be stored for long periods of time.
