Gran used to have three small milk bottles (think they must have been 250mls/ 1/2 pints) that this fitted into, would make a cute gift if you could find/buy some mini milk bottles (you see them in gift stores with screw on lids sometimes). If you have heaps of mint or more mouths to feed, simply double the recipe.
- 500mls of malt vinegar
- 400g of brown sugar
- 3/4 cup mint leaves chopped finely
Bring the sugar and vinegar to the boil, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. Simmer gently for 5to 10 minutes, it will reduce slightly (keep an eye on it so you don't end up with vinegar toffee!) then cool till just warm. Add mint, stir well, then bottle into sterilised bottles.
