Marvellous Mints

 

Mint covers it all! It literally covers the ground and will spread far and wide given the chance. In the culinary sense, mints can do it all too. From savoury to sweet, it can be cooked, drunk, used to garnished and added to sauces and jams. The flavours of mint have been used in candy, chewing gum and toothpaste for over a century. The flavour and scent of mint is just marvellous!
