Cole & Mason Mint
Eat our Mint with a big, meaty burger. Mint cuts though fatty meat and gives a hit of freshness. So sprinkle a bit into beef or lamb mince for homemade burgers. Or add to barbecued mushroom burgers for a vegetarian option.
Why not try using mint without meat. Try a refreshing Turkish dish – thick, salty yogurt with roasted veg. Stir mint and garlic into the yogurt for a touch of warmth and extra freshness. That freshness works in zesty fruit salads, too. Mix dried mint and lavender with orange flower water and honey, and simmer for a summery syrup.
Mint originally came from Egypt. But now there's barely a country you won't find it in. Its fresh, cooling notes make it popular in far more than just food. You'll find cosmetics, aromatherapy and medicine on the long list of mint uses.
Mint can withstand being cooked for a long time without losing its flavour. So it's good for balancing against harsh aromas – both savoury and sweet.
