My neighbor just cut down her mint plants and gave me a large quantity of mint leaves. I've been making tea with them, but I was wondering what else I could make or how I could preserve them so they don't go to waste?
If you strike a couple of the leaves by placing them lightly on a sandy loose soil, or by using a powdered root hormone and then plant them in a terracotta pot, then you will always have fresh mint on hand and not have worry about preserving it. Mint is easy to strike and can be grown from leaf cuttings.
Thank you all for your wonderful suggestions! It's a great idea to strike a few but I've learned from my neighbor to keep it potted. I really like the mint ice cream/smoothie, I'm definitely going to make that!!!! And drying some will help me out too. I really appreciate that you all took the time to help me out.
