Marvelous Mint, More than a Breath Freshener

You probably associate mint with toothpaste or breath freshener, but it has been used as an herbal remedy and a spa soother in face packs, foot rubs, and bath soaks. Both peppermint and spearmint are very popular, especially for cooking, and if you’re not a gardener, you can easily find commercially dried leaves.

7 Mint Hints For Your Kitchen:

  1. Steam vegetables with mint in the water.
  2. Mix chopped mint with butter for boiled new potatoes.
  3. Mix chopped dried mint with mashed potatoes, olive oil and lemon juice for a healthy Mediterranean flair.
  4. Toss whole mint leaves in cooked rice before serving.
  5. Freeze whole mint leaves in ice cubes for tea or lemonade.
  6. Make salad dressing with mint, lemon juice, vinegar, and olive oil.
  7. Garnish desserts, vegetables, or roasts with a couple of sprigs of mint.
  8. Chew some fresh mint to cleanse your palate and your breath!
