Mint

About Me: There are around 15 different varieties of mint, but the true number is unknown because hybridization between some of the species occurs naturally. Mint is great for calming and soothing upset stomachs and helps indigestion. We love using fresh mint as a garnish for meals but it’s also great to dehydrate and use as tea.

To store: For short-term storage, stand upright in a container with an inch of water. Then cover the herbs loosely with a reused plastic bag and refrigerate for up to 2 weeks. To dry, either put in a dehydrator until all moisture has gone, or tie the bunch of mint with a string and hang it upside down in a cool, dry place until all moisture is gone.
