A handful of fresh Mint, washed
3 teaspoons (15ml) caster or granulated Sugar
2 tablespoons (30ml) Boiling Water
2 tablespoons (30ml) White Wine Vinegar
- Take the washed leaves off the stalks, and chop them fairly finely - throwing the stalks away.

Allow to cool. The sauce will keep well in fridge - indeed the flavour will improve, over a day or so.
