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 easy to grow, it has such a wonderful fresh scent, and it can be used for all sorts of things.
Here are some easy ways to use mint:
Put 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 put a few cubes in your favorite casserole or stew.
Remember?next time you're thinking of creating a special dish, or even an attractive arrangement for your table, make it with mint.
