Sweet and Sour Mint Sauce
- Yield: Makes about 2 cups
- 1 cup mint jelly
- 1/3 cup distilled white vinegar (more or less to taste)
- 1 tablespoon dried mint
- Coarse salt (kosher or sea)
- Freshly ground black pepper
Step 1: Place the ingredients in a saucepan. Gradually bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking steadily. Reduce the heat and simmer the sauce until the vinegar has lost its sharpness, 2 minutes.
Step 2: Add salt and pepper to taste and more vinegar as needed. The sauce should be sweet, sour, and aromatic.
