Mint Green Spearmint
Mint is possibly the world’s most popular flavouring for mouthwashes, toothpastes and breath-fresheners, however one should not let this overtly antiseptic image of mint discourage the cook from appreciating its culinary benefits.
Mint combines well with savoury herbs such as Thyme, Sage, Marjoram, Parsley and Oregano when added to meat dishes, and is found in even the most exotic of fiery chilli pastes such as Harissa.
Other Common Names: Common Mint, Garden Mint, Spearmint.
Botanical Name: (Mentha spicata)
