Fresh peppermint is worth including in your herb garden. Once you have a sprig, place in water and it will root. Share a small pot with friends and you will always have it. Chop and make peppermint tea or use with watermelon or other melons. May be added as well to any mixed fruit salad. If not available, use regular mint and add a couple of drops of peppermint essence.
