Preserving extra mint?

OnceUponABite | Jul 5, 2006 05:56 PM

I always buy a bunch of mint when I just need three sprigs to decorate my dessert. Now I have another bunch sitting inside my fridge.

I want to see if you hounds have some clever way of either preserving the tippy tops for future garnish, or making some sort of mint syrup, or maybe just some chutney? With other herbs I can either dry them or blend with evoo and store in ice cubes trays. But with mint, I'm not sure I can do either.

Suggestions?
