Mint Leaves, Spearmint, Organic - 1 oz
Spearmint and peppermint are the leaves of a perennial herb which are used fresh or picked and dried for longer storage. These herbs retain much flavor when dried and produce a strong taste. Mint leaves have a pure and refreshing odor accompanied by a pungent and burning taste."As for the garden of mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and refreshes our spirits, as the taste stirs up our appetite for meat." - Pliny
Spearmint is mainly used in cooking and is commonly found in lamb dishes, jellies or tossed with fresh fruits and vegetables.
