Mint is grown for its aromatic and flavorful leaves. The oval serrated leaves are indented with veins and come to a point. They impart a fresh clean scent and a strong mint flavor with sweet overtones.
Mint is used both fresh and dried for both sweet and savory dishes. Infuse syrups or blend into cocktails, yogurt, whipped creams and sorbet. Pair with citrus, berries, custards, Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes, seafood, melons, peas, beans, summer squash and aged sheep's milk cheeses.
