The classic garden mint, spearmint is a versatile herb that is excellent in both food and beverages. Enhance your green salads by tossing in fresh mint leaves. Fresh peas and mint are a match made in heaven. Mixed into pasta salads, sprinkled on roasted vegetables, made into mint chutney for lamb–its culinary affinity is unmatched. For beverages, crush fresh mint for mojitos, juleps and cocktails, add it to cold beverages, like juice or tea, or steep it for a hot herbal tea.
