Uses Of Mint

  

There is many different uses of mint in our daily life.Here there is the most 10 uses of mint that can we use it for.

 

 

1-Mint Tea. Simply place a few sprigs (or a handful of leaves) into a teapot with a little sugar and  allow to infuse for a few minutes before serving. This is great for settling a nervous stomach.

                                                                                                                             

                                                            

2-Iced Mint Tea. Allow the above to cool, chill, and serve. This is great on a hot summers day with a few ice cubes and mint leaves floating in the glass.

 

  

3-Make Tabbouleh. Mix bulgur wheat, mint, garlic, tomato…well, here’s a recipe from a previous WHB. While Chris doesn’t include mint in the ingredients for her version, she does mention how it can be used instead.

                                                              

  

4-Mint (and Rosemary) Pesto. This alternative Pesto recipe great served with fresh lamb, and was my entry back in WHB #52.

  

5-Mint Face Packs. Make a paste (i.e. purée) with a handful of mint leaves, half a tub of Natural Yoghurt and a quarter of a cucumber, and apply to the skin for 15 minutes – it will sooth and purify. Or you could just eat it…

  

6-Traditional English Mint Sauce. For the old school accompaniment to lamb that takes some beating, mix a handful of chopped mint leaves with a tbsp of sugar,4 tbsps of White Wine vinegar, and a little salt and pepper to taste.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7-Indian Style Mint Sauce. The Indian styled mint sauce is called Raita – simply substitute the vinegar above for 250ml Natural Yoghurt and mix well.

  

8-Mojito: A Mojito is a refreshing Cuban summer cocktail recipe. Simply mix 2 tsp Sugar with around 10 mint leaves, 2 tbsp lime juice, and 75ml (2.5 fl. oz) rum. Pour over a glass half filled with ice cubes, and top up with soda water.

  

9-Mint Potatoes. Chop up and toss with fresh boiled or roast potatoes. Voilà – mint potatoes.

  

10-Garnish. Take a simple looking desert, sprinkle liberally with icing sugar and decorate with a couple of sprigs of mint. You’re now super 80s cool .
