This is one of the easiest sauces to make, it is also a good introduction to cooking for someone without experience. In the UK mint traditionally accompanies Roast Lamb but works well with a wide range of lamb dishes, vegetarian meals and Moroccan cuisine. In some households mint sauce is also used liberally with mushy peas. A quick tip for mint raita is to mix yogurt with freshly made mint sauce.

one of my fondest childhood memories is that of staying with my grandparents in Deal in Kent. My grandmother would let me pick some of the mint that grew close to her back door and letting me help her prepare the sauce for Sunday dinner. We might also make some more if there was enough lamb left over to have the meat cold on Monday. We served the cold lamb with mint sauce together with salad and bubble and squeak.
I have tried different ways to prepare mint sauce including different types of vinegar, I don't seem to be recapture the delicious flavour present in my Nan's version. Could something be missing or is it just a question of nostalgia playing tricks on my taste buds. Mrs Wilton"
