⅓ – ½ cup of fresh Mint, finely chopped, to taste

½ teaspoon of Salt

¼ teaspoon of Black Pepper, freshly ground

In a saucepan, place all the ingredients, except the cornstarch and water.  Bring the liquid to a boil and then reduce the heat on it and cook it for about 3-5 minutes.  In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and the water and then slowly add this to the saucepan, continuing to cook it and stirring it until the sauce becomes thick.  Then, remove it from heat and serve it alongside your favorite lamb recipes.
