About peppermint

Peppermint is a hybrid of watermint and spearmint. It's indigenous to Europe and the Middle East, but it only appears in the wild occasionally. Most peppermint is grown domestically, and people use it all over the world. It's one of the oldest medicinal and culinary herbs, and it has a stronger, more minty taste than other types of mint. Before the American Revolution, people often made peppermint tea because it wasn't taxed by the British like tea leaves. They called it liberty tea.

Peppermint has tiny pink or white flowers that bloom in spherical groups in summer or early fall. It often grows beside places with plenty of water, and it's sterile because it's a hybrid. However, it can still reproduce vegetatively from cuttings. Peppermint's strong scent keeps many insects away, and people often plant it in organic gardens. However, it grows so quickly that some gardeners consider it a weed.

FAQs About Peppermint

To make dried peppermint from fresh leaves, wash and dry them thoroughly and discard the stems. Then, spread the leaves on a baking sheet and cook them in your oven at 180 degrees Fahrenheit for about two to four hours. Check on them often to prevent overcooking.

You can store peppermint leaves in your refrigerator's vegetable crisper for a few days to a week. If you have peppermint sprigs with the stems still attached, you can trim them and put them in a mug like you would a bouquet of flowers. Then, cover them loosely and put them in your fridge. They can last for up to two weeks.

Peppermint is very low in calories, and the delicious flavor it adds to dishes lets you avoid using sugar, salt, or fat to make meals appealing. Peppermint has many health benefits. It can help treat indigestion, headaches, nausea, and painful or itchy skin. If you have a cold, it can soothe your sore throats and help eliminate a stuffy nose.
