Learn the simple process of making ground dried mint spice at home.

Ingredients

A huge bunch of freshly picked green mint

Method

1. For best taste use freshly picked mint, and preferably organic

2. Rinse mint with cold water and let dry

3. Pick the green leaves and discard the stems

4. Lay green leaves on a towel by a window (but NOT in direct sunlight) and in a well ventilated area and let dry for 5-10 days. Note that direct sunlight will blacken the mint leaves and weaken their taste

5. If the mint leaves are still not fully dried after a few days passed, you can bake them at very low heat in the oven, at 170F for about 20 or so minutes until they’re fully dried and they break apart if you rub them with your fingers.

6. Discard any excessively yellow leaves from bunch

7Place dried mint leaves in food processor, and let it run for a few minutes until it turns into a powder

8. Filter the resulting powder mint in a filter/strainer to remove any stem leftovers

9. Store filtered dried mint in an air-tight container/jar in a cool/dry place away from sunlight

Variations

You may also like to leave the dried mint leaves as is, without grinding, and preserve them in an air-tight jar to use with teas. You may also bundle the green mint bunches and tie them with a rope to the ceiling on a balcony/porch in a place that doesn’t get direct sun light. In this method they tend to dry faster.

Dried mint can last several months if kept in an air-tight container.

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
