If you have a mint plant, what do you use it for?

I use my mint in salsa and brewed ice tea. Mojitos coming soon!!!

    Mmmm...Mojitos! I also love it in ice tea. I really have never used it for anything else, so I just googled it. There are some good ideas on this page...

  • i use it to make chutney .. add mint leaves, few drops of vinegar, 1 garlic clove, salt, little bit of red pepper flakes , cumin seeds and little bit of water(how ever it is required to blend it) in a juicer or a blender..
    great with nuggets or bar-b-q chicken !!! or just serve it with oven baked chicken :)

  • I use it for the same things as you guys, but the recipes posted look good. I sometimes add it to fruity deserts and smoothies too. We actually have several different types of mint plants and they just make great ground cover for us that smells heavenly when the kids go tramping through it.

  • Teas, iced teas, various sauces and dishes, and yes mojitos. My favorite mojitos are mint & wild blackberry with a good silver rum. MMMMMM

  • I use it for practical things too. It really keeps bugs away especially ants so I use it to line my garden and put it at my back door.
