How To Make Mint Sauce
Entertaining guests for dinner, or just having a nice meal with your family? This tutorial will teach you how to make mint sauce, which perfectly accompanies any lamb dishes you wish to make.
Hi, I'm Matt Kemp from the Underground Cookery School. I'm going to show you how to make a series of sauces. I hope you enjoy it.
I'm going to show you how to make a mint sauce. The key to this is just putting in ingredients according to the way you want it to taste. I've got a pan of boiling water ready to go; just be careful to not add too much water.
The first thing I'm going to do is add some white wine vinegar. I'm also going to add some freshly chopped mint. I'm going to add equal quantities of sugar and salt, in this case, about a quarter of a teaspoon.
I don't want much more than that. And I'm just going to give it a good old mix and add a bit more white wine vinegar. And then add a little drop of boiling water, which will balance everything out.
Now, I'm going to put this into a ramekin. I was going to put it in this one, but just to give you an idea, I'm going to pop it in one of these, because I wanted it to be a little bit smaller, so I really made a small quantity today. And in it goes.
And there you have your perfect mint sauce. The obvious thing that you would use that for is roast lamb. It's got the robustness, and the flavor distinctly in the white wine vinegar which will come through the flavor of the lamb, which is quite acute.
And it needs something to be able to support it. It really is the classic dressing to go with any lamb dish.
