A friend has a Korean mint plant that is taking over her yard so she's offered to share. I had never even heard of it before--any suggestions for using it up? Can I use it like Thai Basil? Are there any dishes in which it is a key ingredient?
Jennifer Colliau, bartender at San Francisco's Heaven's Dog and owner of Small Hand Foods, loves using mint in her drinks, but she warns home bartenders against using wooden muddlers with this delicate herb. Use a spoon instead, lest you end up with a drink that tastes like toothpaste. This tip will come in handy when you're making your next Mojito.
