Hi All,

My mint plants are going mad this summer and I would like to make some mint sauce for the winter. Any tried and tested recipes would be great!

My mum taught me about a recipe her grandmother used.... Chop up a load of mint, add some sugar to taste, and some vinegar... Just normal table vinegar, to get it to the right consistency for your liking. If you like it hot, you could add some cayenne pepper!

In fact, does anyone know how you would you go about making mint jelly?

Mint Sauce

Agreed just vineger and chopped mint, with Sugar, Salt and lemon juice to taste, I would heat and the jar, but the heating does turn the mint brown.

On the mint Jelly, I would first off boil the chopped mint and vinegar with as much as half of the sugar and leave for at least a day, so the Sugar really soaks into the mint, you will find this will stop all the mint floating to the top of the Jelly.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.
