Additional Information:
Mint enjoys a long history as a symbol of hospitality: Greeks used to rub mint on dinner tables before guests arrived and mint tea is still offered to guests as they are welcomed into homes in the Middle East.  Mints are known for their crisp clean flavours and are used in cooking, culinary fare and herbal medicines. The mint family contains upward of 24 true species but since there are hybrid varieties you can find at least 2000, if not more, main varieties.

The highly viable essential oils get Mint distinctive flavours and fragrances, such as those of pineapple mint, apple mint, and even chocolate mint. They tend to be underrated as culinary herbs. Fresh or dried mint, mint sauce, or mint jelly always goes well with lamb. Try using it instead of basil in your favourite pesto recipe.   This herb is an often forgotten ingredient in salads; finally, chop leaves of any flavour to create a tasty high note. In recent years mint jelly has become popular as well as mint butter.

Peppermint and spearmint make some of the best herbal teas served iced or hot. Add sprigs of leaves to any iced tea. Fresh peppermint or spearmint makes an excellent sun tea. For mint sun tea take a full handful of leaves, twisting or bruising them to release the essential oils, and then place them in a gallon jar in the sun for about 30 min., Add ice as a refreshing summertime beverage.

Mint is a great addition to desserts, complementing a wide range of chocolate desserts; either incorporated into the dish as flavouring or used his garnish. Choose pineapple or apple mint for a particular tangy sorbet. It is well known that these herbs are used in every category of candy making.

Storage Advice:
“How long do dried herbs last?”
Depends on both the type of herb and the conditions under which they are stored. Correctly dried and stored herbs do not actually spoil. But over time, they will lose their potency, aroma and flavour.

As a general rule, whole dried herbs (not been ground) will last much longer than ground and can last for 1 to 3 years. It is also never a bad idea to freeze any spare herbs, try to remove as much air as possible and make sure it is kept sealed in the freezer to avoid moisture.

Here are some tips for maximising the shelf life of your herbs:

  • Store in an airtight container.
  • Store in a cool, dark cupboard.
  • Store away from direct heat or sunlight.
  • Keep lid tightly closed when not in use.
