Do you ever have posh fish and chips in those rather smart restaurants and always think the tartar sauce tastes so much better than what you get in a jar, well the good news is that it's actually really easy to make and can save you money.
When you buy a jar of tartar sauce, quite often if not eaten within a couple of weeks it can go yellow around the edges and has to be thrown away. Well if you invest in a small jar of capers, take a few out, mash them up with a fork and add them to some mayonnaise that is your posh tartar sauce. Just add more capers or mayonnaise depending on the consistency and taste you prefer.
If you want to add a bit more citrus, you can squeeze in some lemon juice or use some lemon mayonnaise if you have any. If you are a bit of a pepper fan then add a pinch of freshly ground pepper as well.
It's the same for mint sauce, if you have any fresh mint chop it up and add it to some vinegar. You can add a pinch of sugar if you like your mint sauce a bit sweeter.
If you have any fresh herbs left in the fridge that need using up pop them in the freezer and add them to sauces, curry’s, stews etc. as and when you need them.
You can add frozen mint to vinegar and it will defrost virtually immediately to give you a lovely homemade sauce.
