Mmmm! Min-tea Fresh!
It comes up very early and stays until the first deep freeze. I dry it all through the season so I have plenty to get us through the winter. It goes in all of my Greek cooking and we make tea with it. The boys have asthma and menthol is great for their lungs both inhaled and ingested.
This morning I noticed it when I looked out the window. Then my son came in from messing around in the farmyard and asked if he could pick some mint. He brought in a whole basket full of long, green sprigs.
While he made himself a cup of hot tea, I made a gallon of black/green/mint iced tea.
Recipes I use that call for mint:
Gyros, Pita, and Tzaziki Sauce
Greek Beef Stew over Minted Orzo
