What to do with chocolate mint?

lainamalone | Jul 26, 2009 04:37 PM

Bought a large bunch of it at the farmer's mkt, and now am not sure what to do with it! If you've never smelled it, it has a faintly chocolatey aroma when you crush the leaves, and has a much more potent (and less vegetal) mint smell/flavor than the kind you most often see at the store (which is spearmint, I guess?)

Everything I've found so far has advised using it in sweet things or making tea with it--anyone know of a way to use it in a savory dish? It does seem like it might be overpowering in the usual Thai/Vietnamese recipes...Any suggestions?
