Apple Mint Plant
The delicate flavor of Apple mint works best in fresh, uncooked preparations. Muddle leaves and add to cocktails, mocktails and tea. Add whole or chopped leaves to popsicles, sorbets and ice cubes. Use to make sauces or herb rubs for poultry, lamb and seafood. Roughly chop Apple mint and add to chutney, dressings, jelly or brine when pickling. Unlike many other varieties of mint due to its fuzzy textured leaves Apple mint is not commonly used as a garnish.
