Storage Tip: Store in the plastic bag it comes in and wash prior to eating, or wash and store it for later.
Tasty Tidbit: Other than garnish, you can use peppermint for making tea, ice cream, cocktails, or brownies. To make tea, put 4-5 leaves in each cup, cover with boiling water, and steep for 5 minutes. Our daughter loves to eat the leaves after she’s done with the tea. One website suggests adding a few tarragon leaves to the cup, a piece of a vanilla bean pod, a lemon wedge, or all of the above.
