Indigenous to Europe, peppermint was originally consumed for medicinal purposes, with archaeological evidence dating its use back almost ten thousand years. The ancient Greeks are thought to be the first to have cultivated the plant and even gave the herb its own legend in classic mythology.
Eventually peppermint became a commonly used ingredient in food and is now prevalent in Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian cuisine, as well as popular European and American desserts such as peppermint ice cream (which was loved by Napoleon Bonaparte’s first wife, Marie Louis), candy canes and mint chocolates.
