Can homemade mint sauce be kept or will it spoil?
Thankfully mint sauce can be kept, as long as it is covered or sealed and is then placed in the fridge.
Your mint sauce will keep for two weeks, so you can enjoy it a fair few times if you made too much in the first instance.
If you do not believe you can use this mint sauce in time, you can also freeze mint sauce, ideally using an ice cube tray, so you can get the exact amount you need each time.
What can I do with leftover mint sauce?
Mint sauce can be delicious with other foods.
If you combine your sauce with cooked garden peas they will taste delicious as a side dish.
You can also turn mint sauce into a dip for foods such as chicken wings by combining it with some plain yoghurt.
