I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Classic Mint Sauce with Malt Vinegar

I love bringing fresh cut mint into the house. It smells so good!
Here is all that you'll need for this recipe:
(it makes about 3 0z.)

1 cup mint leaves
1/4 cup malt vinegar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice

To make this traditional English mint sauce remove the leaves from the stems.  A few of the tender shoots may be left in.  Measure about 1 cup of mint lightly pressed into the measuring cup.

In a food processor add the malt vinegar to the leaves and pulse  until finely chopped.

Put it in a saucepan along with the brown sugar and lemon juice.  Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 minutes.

Pour into a sterilized jar. Keep in the fridge and use within a week.

Or process in a hot water bath 15 minutes to keep longer. 
Now I really have to get me some lamb!
