Ice Cubes Go Modern

There's a bounty of mint in the garden and aside from adding some to my apple jelly, I thought I'd share another way to use this wonderful herb. Ready? Ice Cubes. Yep. It couldn't be simpler. Select some attractive leaves and drop one or two into your ice cube tray. Fill with water and freeze. When the cubes are solid, pop them out and store them in plastic freezer bags in the freezer.

Jazz up your ice tea or your tonic water with these cubes. They'll not only keep your drink cold, they'll add some color and some nice flavor when they melt.

  1. Oh yes something I wanted to find out about. I've got tons of mint and wanted to make mint jelly or something with it. Do you have any suggestions for mint jelly?

  2. Mint jelly is usually apple jelly with mint leaves crushed and boiled up to add color and flavor.

  3. What a great idea! I'm definitely going to try that one. I bet it would be delicious in iced tea.
