Ingredients

  • 1 Cup water
  • 1/4 Ounce mint leaves
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 Cup sugar

Directions

Bring ingredients to a boil over medium/high heat. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Reduce heat to low and simmer twenty minutes. Chill.

Mint Shopping Tip

Keep both fresh herbs and dried herbs on hand. Dry herbs will last a long time, while fresh herbs have a short shelf-life.

Mint Cooking Tip

If you want the flavor of herbs in your food without the actual pieces, wrap them in cheese cloth and cook; discard before eating.
