Freeze-dried Peppermint

PEPPERMINT With a distinctive spicy freshness, peppermint can be used in a wide range of sweet and savoury products, as well as in tea and sweet cordials. A cross between spearmint and watermint, it is a versatile herb renowned for its health benefits, and in particular, its ability to aid digestion. Freeze-dried peppermint works well with feta, peas, pork, chicken and chick peas, and is an essential ingredient in many Mediterranean and North African recipes. In sweet dishes, it pairs well with a wide range of summer and tropical fruits, and works particularly well when added to smoothies before blending. It can also be used to impart natural mint flavour to ice cream.
