    YBAVERAGE2003: I like fresh mint in smoothies. Also, in iced tea.

    YBAVERAGE2003 - Mint is wonderful in water ( use a diffuser or soaked for a while then strain if you do not want the bits and pieces ) . Mint jelly is very good too . Mint also repels certain bugs - I dry mint , sage and bay leaves for pest control and natural air freshener in my house . Mint can be used in candies, soaps and lotions.

    Not sure what I'm having tonight. I need to go home and work my garden so may not get inside until about bedtime. It may be a microwave dinner!

    ybaverage2003 - I am not really a big mint fan so no real help there. I did see some interesting recipes here, though:

    My basil & oregano are growing like gangbusters...looks like I need to make a batch of homemade spaghetti sauce. I also have tons of mint...anyone have any ideas on how to use it ?
