My mum gave her mint plants a radical haircut, and presented me with half a black garbage bag of mint stems! Waste not, want not, so I have made (or am in the process of making):
Mint syrup (part 1), mint jelly (9 jars)

Nigel Slater's mackrel with rhubarb and sherry vinegar. In a nutshell: pan fried mackerel served with oven baked rhubarb. The sherry vinegar comes into it at the end when you are rewarming the rhubarb in the pan before serving. Mine was a bit mushier than Nigel's, and didn't look pretty, but the taste combination was surprisingly good.
