Mint Chopped and Dried
What is Mint?
Mint has long added its bright flavour and scent to drinks and dishes. The fresh or dried leaves are used as an ingredient, while the essential oil is extracted as a flavouring and scent. The young leaves are continuously harvested from spring through autumn, but Mint can also be grown indoors and so is available year-round. The Mint plant is common and a favourite of many gardeners, so it's easy to grow your own. As an herb, it is gluten-free and suitable for vegan, vegetarian, and paleo diets.
Where does Mint Come From?
Mint, (genus Mentha), genus of 25 species of fragrant herbs of the Mint family (Lamiaceae). Native to Eurasia, North America, Southern Africa, and Australia, Mints are widely distributed throughout the temperate areas of the world and have naturalized in many places. A number of species, particularly Peppermint and Spearmint, are used as flavourings for foods (including sweets and gum) and for liqueur and dentifrices. The essential oils of Mints are used as scents in perfumery. Some species are commonly used in herbal medicine.
