Fried potatoes with eggs…I’ll give them a try lol

I have two big patches of mint growing in my yard, chocolate-mint and cinnamon-mint. I make mint tea year round, and during the holidays, mint cookies, and minted lamb chops.

Need to get more recipes involving mint, because so much of it gets hacked and tossed, to keep the patches manageable.


#1681

You can make peppermint essential oil! That stuff is like icy hot on steroids.


#1682

Because our herbs tend to come in bumper crops, I either dry or chop and freeze my extra herbs. I have so many different “pestos” in my freezer. But makes for fresh, easy meals all year.

Back when my Dad was growing up in Central Washington there was a big jack rabbit infestation and the county issued and extermination order since they were demolishing entire crop fields in short amounts of time.

Central Washington also happens to be one of the few places in the nation that can grow mint agriculturally for big market distribution. Many of these fields are used primarily for mint oil. Some of these fields extract on site and dispose of the mulch on the side of the field to rot away.

Anyway, during this jack rabbit hunt, one hunter went missing. No one knew what happened to the guy until a couple months later when they found his bones. Apparently he’d climbed a massive hill of mint refuse for a vantage point and got stuck and sank down into the mint leaves unable to escape.

He literally suffocated and burned up in the mint. Sucky way to go.

Same here. I have a dehydrator, plus I have a green house for pots of basil, chive, oregano. I just have way more mint than I can use. Seriously. My 2 patches are like 16sqft.


#1685

I am going to make this. Seems easy enough, and I’ve got plenty of mint. Likely use coconut oil for the carrier. We keep a bunch of it on-hand.


#1686

Coconut oil is a great carrier oil. I made homemade “vicks” vapor rub with it.


#1687

but at least he smelled good, which is likely why they couldn’t find him.


#1688

Oh dear gosh! That’s a horrible way to go. :frowning:


#1689

Smelled good from 20 feet away. Dont want to burn the nostrils!


#1690

That’s horrifying Rob! I’m gonna have nightmares about mint…


#1691

Muahahahahahaha! Mint for the win!


#1692

This is like an old school horror movie way to go… Yikes.
