Mint – Not Just for Bad Breath!

Mints - Not Just for Bad Breath!You probably associate mint with toothpaste or breath freshener, but since time immemorial, its essential oil has been used as an herbal remedy and as a distinct flavoring for food. Today, both peppermint and spearmint continue to be very popular for cooking, and if you don’t grow your own, mint can easily be found at the local grocer. Try these 7 mint hints: steam vegetables with mint in the water, mix chopped mint with butter to use on boiled potatoes, freeze whole mint leaves in ice cubes for tea or lemonade, add mint to your home-made oil and vinegar salad dressing, use it to garnish desserts, vegetables, or roasts, and chew some fresh mint to cleanse your palate and your breath!
