#396: Nantucket Mint

Mint loves Nantucket.
It grows wild all over the place.
 As all mints are invasive, they have their own mini-garden.

Which, in a mere month, is already trying to escape.

We also planted spearmint near our 
outside faucets, to use the drips efficiently.
I harvested some and got:
A whole countertop full!

Five bunches were hung to dry,
out of the sun, for tea.

 Becky blended two cups in the Vitamix,
strained it out,
added half a cup of organic sugar and a spritz of lemon,
then half froze it.
Mint sorbet, mmmm.
