Lovely mint

Mint is one of our favorite herbs, and it grows like crazy in our garden! The leaves are really large and fragrant, and I love that we almost have a whole flower border filled with mint.

I used to dry herbs in little bunches, but they never dried well enough. Nowadays I dry them like this on a piece of newspaper.

When they are dried, I store them in a bowl in the kitchen, ready to be used in anything – a smoothie, a casserole, a salad. Almost any food really.

Before drying I sometimes pick a whole bunch of mint, just to have this lovely fragrant bouquet in the kitchen. Perfect for teas and sore throats and hungry bunnies!
