Fresh Mint Sauce

A classic British sauce made with 3 ingredients. Brilliant! Although beloved with lamb, it is equally tempting on beef, chicken, shellfish, grilled vegetables, as a base for a vinaigrette for salad, or add a tablespoon or two to a glass of sparkling water. Make the sauce an hour ahead so the mint has time to steep in the vinegar syrup.

1 cup malt vinegar
1/2 cup sugar
6 large sprigs fresh mint, eachc sprig torn in 3 pieces
1/4 cup freshly chopped mint

Bring the vinegar, sugar, and mint sprigs to a boil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Boil for 1 minute, remove from the heat, cover, and let mint steep for 1 hour, until cool. Remove the sprigs and discard. Add the chopped mint, stir well. You may serve at room temperature or chill if using with cold food.
