Mint sauce, mustard and horseradish sauce
Whenever I cook a meat based dish I love to add some mustard, horseradish or mint sauce where appropriate and even though the mustard or horseradish invariably makes me sneeze I still love them.
English and Dijon mustard
As I child I remember making mint sauce and adding vinegar and a spoon of sugar and we would serve it in it's own little bowl not straight from the jar. Mustard in my childhood household was Colman's English mustard and came in a tube like toothpaste. Dijon mustard would have been unheard of!
Horseradish sauce and mint sauce
Today I cooked a simple dish of new potatoes, french beans and two lamb chops cooked in olive oil and a sprig of rosemary from the garden with mint sauce of course.
