Mint syrup

Mrs Thomas's mint syrup

Great stuff, Mrs Thomas

Mrs Thomass Mint Syrup2 Like many food products, Mrs Thomas’s mint syrup started with its owner, Jan de Voer, making mint syrup for family and friends. And like all really good food products, Mrs Thomas’s Mint Syrup quickly became hot property. Mrs Thomas was a neighbour of Jan’s parents, who gave them the recipe half a century ago – a nice way to honour her memory.

The mint used for the mint syrup is free of pesticides and grown on their own property in Canterbury. Full care is taken to ensure the mint is freshly picked every time a new batch is made.

As a New Zealander, most of can relate to memories of mint sauce on lamb roasts, if not every Sunday, then sometimes, depending on your age. Personally, mint sauce is a favourite over its cousin, gloggy gravy.

Mrs Thomas however, recommends you stretch your taste buds by extending the syrup to not just salads and greens, but also to ice cream and fresh fruit. We had a ball trying the latter option and can happily report the taste sensation was decidedly favourable. Thanks for the heads up, Mrs Thomas!
