This is a classic all purpose herb with a cool, minty-peppery like aftertaste. It is perfect to use in any dish calling for “mint”. Peppermint is more commonly used in desserts, adding fresh flavor to fruits, ices, and sherberts. Spearmint is popular in the Balkans and Middle East, where it is used both fresh and dried with grilled meats, stuffed vegetables and rice and is an essential ingredient of dolma. Yogurt dressings, dips, and soups often include mint. Peppermint is used to flavor toothpaste, chewing gum, and liqueurs such as crème de menthe.
