Spring Sauce for Lamb

I always part company with mint sauce if it's made with malt vinegar which completely overpowers the flavour of the lamb, but the following sauce - which my grandmother always served with lamb - is made with wine vinegar diluted with an equal quantity of water, so it's much milder.
