Mint Meal! July 19th

Wow! Ten guys in one class! A large crowd meant we could tackle the five-recipe menu I had planned: zucchini pasta with mint and rocambole garlic, a salsa salad with spearmint, cucumber granita with mint and Kim’s chives, herbed lemonade with mixed mints and lavender blossoms, and a honeydew melon sorbet with lime and chocolate mint.

Mint is a fantastic plant, but highly invasive. There are two ways to fix this in a tidy garden: make mint a home of its own in a solo pot, or plant it in its nursery container.
