Spice Rack Challenge June Roundup: Mint

Wow!  Nicole's rhubarb mojitos sure look fetching!  Make sure to drink them before they fade.

Mint and melon might even be a better combination than mint and chocolate, Maggie. Glad you have a "Minty" T shirt

Mary makes a lovely mint pesto for her Middle Eastern dish this month.

I'm glad someone did the pea and mint soup, as I wanted to do it but no peas here in Michigan yet.

Raspberry mint cooler sounds like a great drink for summer.

Even though it's winter down under, wings with mint and honey sound wonderful.  Sorry our herb is out of season for you.

thinking out loud
Woodman waxes philosphic about mint tea while on vacation, via phone, which reminds us that sometimes, the best recipes are the simplest.

Someone's gotta do the classic mojito, Tracy.  And I am glad it was you!

una buona forchetta
If not mojito, gin smash, I say!  Glad to see you back in the spice rack game.

If life gives you beans, make minted bean salad, I say!

Pretty in Pink Jam looks pretty, but I can't vouch that it's food safe for canning with all that zucchini in it.  I'd skip the canning and store it in the fridge instead.  This jam reminds me of a song, of course....

Somebody had do do the chocolate mint thing....I am so glad it's fresh mint chocolate chunk ice cream.

Tune in Friday for July's challenge....trust me when I say it will be very summery.

Hi Mother's Kitchen

Can I ask why you are concerned with Zucchini in Jam? Even taking away my family's history with making Zuchhini jam and fruit for gen, the The Classic Zucchini Cookbook among other canning recipe books have a version of this jam in it pg 290, so I wonder why what it is about it that you would consider unsafe to can?

Please don't get me wrong, I totally understand you putting a warning on something if you don't consider it safe, hope you don't mind me asking?
