I have this garden full of mint. I got a small plant one year from a “friend” and now, I can’t seem to control it. Had I known then what I know now about the invasive-ness of mint…I would go back, and plant it in a large pot, not just allow them to stick in the ground where it “would be pretty”.
Anyway, I digress. I decided that I am going to stop complaining about this mint, and go to work using it. I’ve made tea until I can’t drink anymore, and I already have mint jelly nightmares. So, I decided to try some homemade mint extract. Just like the vanilla extract but with mint leaves instead.
