Decor for a Lemonade and Cookie morning with friends!
Warning : The leaves tend to get droopy pretty quick though. So a better idea – Grow an indoor mint plant. Duh me. But then it wouldn’t make for such a pretty picture 🙂
Tactic 2 : Pound out the Healthy, Glorious Goodness!
So I sun-dried a bunch of mint sprigs for 2-3 days and then just ground them into a mint powder that can be stored and is ready for use anytime – in salads, curries, lemonades, raitas , paranthas ..the list goes on. Mint is a great digestive aid and has a supremely cooling effect.
