Kentucky Colonel Mint
Kentucky Colonel Spearmint is one of my favorites for iced tea.
I often keep a little vase of cuttings on the kitchen counter,
so people can add a few leaves to the bottom of their glass.
After a few days, if any cuttings remain,
I often find that they've grown roots and can be potted up if somebody
wants a new little plant. Dropping ice cubes on top of
the leaves bruises them slightly so they release their wonderful flavor.
Mint even makes a glass of ice water taste special!
This mint plant can be used in any recipe calling for spearmint,
including mint sauce and mint jelly. This mint plant can be grown in a pot and will do very well.
It tends to spread easily.
