The secret to a really good mint sauce is to not chop the mint too fine. It does need to be well chopped, but keeping some texture to it is nice.
Do not use a blender to make this sauce, as it will turn it into a mushy mess.

Store: You can store it and we recommend making it in advance and keeping it in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving to let the flavours come together. However, the mint will start to lose its vibrant colour any longer than that. If you do have leftovers, then they can be stored in a bowl wrapped in cling film for up to 3 days. If you wanted to keep it longer, then make sure all the mint is covered in the vinegar mixer and it is in a sealed sterilised jar. Then you can keep it for up to 2 months.

Freeze: We don’t recommend freezing mint sauce.

Yes, as long as you are using white wine vinegar and not malt, then this is gluten free. Just make sure there is no cross contamination.

Yes, this recipe is vegan.

No, do not use a blender to make this as it will turn it in to pulp. You still want to have some texture in this sauce.

Make sure you strip all the leaves off the stalks, as you don’t want to chop up any stalks.
Make your homemade mint sauce at least 2 hours in advance and then keep in the fridge until you are ready to serve. This will allow all the flavours to come together.
Some people like their mint sauce really sharp, others like it really sweet. Feel free to adjust the amount of sugar and vinegar added to suit your own tastes.
