We will be starting a herb garden next spring. We will be covering some part of the yard with black plastic to kill the weeds there and hopefully the herbs grow first before the weeds comes back. I will be using fresh herbs with my cooking starting next year, I can't wait. Anyhow, here are something about peppermint.
Peppermint is a type of mint. Normally one simply uses the leaves, either fresh or dried. The leaves have the best flavor if harvested just before the plant blooms. Fresh leaves are good in iced teas, lemonade, fruit salad, cucumber salad and so on. Dried leaves can be used in Middle Eastern recipes and tea as well as in baking.
