Mint, fresh leaves


Plants from the "mentha" family with pungent leaves used world-wide as a flavoring and a garnish.  The two most popular mints are peppermint and spearmint. Both of these plants are very easy to grow but can become a garden pest.  If you don't grow your own then make sure to purchase leaves that are evenly colored and plump looking. 

Fresh mint can be used in salads, beverages, teas, as well as in sweet and savory dishes.
