After many years of measly mint in my yard, I finally have a huge mint farm.....tons of it. And I mean tons. I use it in pestos, drinks & salads. Does anyone have any other ideas to use this stuff up or to perserve it?
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.
