Winter Tips to add Mint to your recipe

Chocolate Mint Truffles: crush a 1 lb bag of chocolate wafer cookies & 1 pkg mint leaves; add 1 8oz-cream cheese and blend well. Roll, chill, dip in melted chocolate.

Add freshly chopped mint to salsa and serve with fresh fish.

Use sprigs of fresh mint to decorate carrot cake, to add depth and flavour.

Combine mint in chocolate in desserts such as mint-chocolate chip ice cream, flourless chocolate cake with mint-infused custard sauce.

A refreshing mint tea can be made by steeping the fresh leaves in hot water!
