Make It With Mint

It wouldn’t be summer without fresh mint in pots on the front porch and in
the garden. Mint is so simple to grow, it has such a wonderful fresh scent,
and it can be used for all sorts of things.

Here are some simple ways to use mint:

Place a few fresh spearmint or peppermint sprigs in a teapot with your
favorite tea. Let steep for 2-3 minutes and serve.

Use sprigs of mint as a pretty garnish for a special dessert.

For a casual arrangement for your dining room or kitchen table, fill an
attractive glass or ceramic pitcher, vase, or other container with water.
Add several long sprigs of fresh mint (being sure to strip away any mint
leaves that would be covered by the water). The mint will add color to
the room, scent the air, and even help keep pesky ants away.

Pot your favorite mint in a pretty container on your front porch to provide
a welcoming fresh scent to anyone who comes to visit.

Add chopped mint leaves to scrambled eggs, omelettes, quiches, or
souffles.

Mix mint in with your regular tabbouleh recipe for a refreshing summer
salad.

Add mint to cooked peas, carrots, or potatoes at the end of the cooking
process, then discard the mint leaves before serving the vegetables.

Make frozen mint cubes to use in many of your favorite foods and
beverages. Finely chop some mint sprigs, then stuff them into ice cube
trays, and fill each section of the tray with water. Freeze. When frozen,
empty the trays into freezer bags. Use the mint cubes for iced tea or
other beverages, or place a few cubes in your favorite casserole or stew.

Remember…next time you’re thinking of making a special dish, or even
an attractive arrangement for your table, make it with mint.
