Additional Information:
Peppermint is a hybrid mint, a cross between watermint and spearmint. Indigenous to Europe and the Middle East, the plant is now widespread in cultivation in many regions of the world. It is occasionally found in the wild with its parent species.

Peppermint has been used for centuries to flavour soups, sauces and meat dishes. It is also commonly used in tea, cookies, and sweets. The cool, refreshing scent and flavour lend itself well to many summer dishes and chilled desserts as well.

Peppermint can also be used in any other vinegar and oil dressing in combination with other herbs for a different twist. Alternately, peppermint leaves can be added fresh to salad for an extra kick.

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.
