Mint Ice Cubes

If you have fresh mint, consider these beverage ideas. Harvest mint from your garden when it is about eight inches high. Wash thoroughly in warm water, crush leaves and stems with your fingers, place in a bowl, and cover with water. Let it set for twenty-four hours.

Strain the water through a sieve lined with a paper towel and pour it into ice-cube trays to freeze. Store the cubes in plastic bags.

Two or three cubes of mint-ice in a glass of water, sweetened to taste, make a refreshing beverage. It is also a delicious flavoring for fruit drinks or may be used in cold chocolate milk as a special treat—Helen McRae, Orem, Utah
