PEPPERMINT CRUSHED - Kosher/Gluten Free

MINT-5

Description:

Peppermint is a natural hybrid cross between watermint and spearmint. Known for its cool and refreshing attributes, peppermint has been used as both a traditional medicine and culinary enhancer for centuries. Modern day uses include everything from breath mints and toothpaste to meat rubs and marinades.

The ingredient responsible for the cooling effect that peppermint has on our palette is menthol.  This cooling burst makes peppermint a fragrant choice for chefs. Crushed peppermint can be added to oven roasted vegetables, grain salads, vinaigrettes, beverages, ice cream, yogurt, salads and cold soups!

Ingredient Statement:

Peppermint.

Product Description
