One of my favorite, yet often most overlooked spices, is mint. Growing up, I remember my mom having mint in her garden and I loved going out there, sticking my nose right up to the plant for a gentle whiff, and then picking a leaf and chewing on it a few times. At the time, it totally blew my mind that I could do this and taste and smell the mint right from the leaf. Obviously I know better now, but my fascination and complete love for this plant hasn’t changed.
