Mint

Pronounce it: mi-nt

There are several types of mint, each with its own subtle difference in flavour and appearance. The most popular type is spearmint, with its pointed, serrated leaves and a familiar refreshing flavour. It is commonly used to make mint sauce or jelly and in tea.

Peppermint has longer, darker leaves and a stronger flavour and is popular in sweets and confectionary. Another popular variety is apple mint, which has a subtle, fruit-tinged flavour and is popular in summer drinks.

Preparation

Mint is a great addition to light summer soups (it pairs especially well with pea, courgette, asparagus and other green vegetables good at this time of year). Plus it’s a great garnish for desserts and drinks - try it sprinkled over sugared strawberries or add it to fruit drinks, cocktails or Moroccan-style sweet tea. mint
