This week Rachel from rachel’s bite is hosting the 87th edition of Weekend Herb Blogging 27.04.2021 **. This week I’m featuring mint. I grow two types of mint in my garden:
|Peppermint||Spearmint or Moroccan Mint|
Spearmint belongs to the curly mints, I grow it in a pot on the terrace, because slugs love it contrary to peppermint. The spearmint taste is milder than peppermint and I used one chopped tablespoon to flavour strawberry jam.
Strawberry Jam with Mint
Delectable on a buttered roll for breakfast!
I was not sure, if I’d like the taste so I tried a small amount „cooked“ in the microwave with a special mixture. I makes just two small glasses of jam.
I like the taste and next time I’ll cook the jam the normal way in a copper pan.

Thyme for Cooking
Ooooh, I love the idea of mint with the strawberries. I have tons of mint but only a few strawberries – but, mint leaves with fresh strawberries sounds pretty good, too!
I love mint!
I really like mint. I have a strip of it along the side of my garden, but it kept growing over into the garden even though I have one of those plastic barriers that you pound down into the ground. so this year I moved my mind into a small area right by my back door. It’s perfect because it’s a triangular shape with the house on one side and a cement sidewalk on the other two sides. Now the mint has to behave itself. That jam looks so wonderful on the toast! (I haven’t had breakfast.) I think mint with strawberries sounds like a great combination.
Of course it should say „I moved my mint“ not my mind!
Letzte Woche hab ich auch Erdbeermarlade mit Minze gemacht.Wenn ich gewusst hätte, wie lecker die schmeckt, hätte schon viel eher welche gemacht.
