Drying mint that we harvested along the banks of the lake at Mountwood Park.
This mint is chocolate mint (yum).
Chocolate Mint (Mentha piperita cv.) neither smells nor tastes like chocolate, but rather it is reminiscent of an Andes after-dinner chocolate Mint. Thus, the suggestion of Chocolate is there and is strong enough to make us love it.
Great dried and added to black tea or used by itself, Chocolate Mint also makes a nice addition to chocolate deserts or a surprise addition to breakfast breads, as in our special Chocolate Mint Banana Bread Recipe.
