Mint (Mentha Spp)

Mint

Description

IDEAL WITH LAMB AND NEW POTATOES

Mint is a versatile and warming herb with a refreshing, sweet flavour. Use generously.

Did you know?

The Latin name ‘mentha’ comes from ‘menthe’, a charming nymph who was changed into the Mint plant by Proserpine, the wife of Pluto, in a fit of jealousy. Mint symbolises hospitality.

Quality

Dried Mint should have a good green colour and a strong Mint flavour. If kept well sealed and away from sunlight it will not lose these properties.

Usage

  • Mix with vinegar and a little sugar to make mint sauce for roast lamb.
  • Sprinkle onto peas and new potatoes, together with a knob of butter.
  • Stir into cooked couscous with olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle Mint onto green salads.
  • Add to yoghurt with diced cucumber for a refreshing raita dip.
