    Mentha ‘Utility Citrus Kitchen’

    If you are serious about herb gardening, mint herb plants have to be included and we think that this one is perfect for both culinary use and as an ornamental, grown in a pot or container.

    Similar in taste to the Orange Mint, Citrus Kitchen Mint has a terrific citric scent and tastes great! Citrus Kitchen makes a great ingredient to stir frys, fruit salads, fish, rice, and summer drinks. This zesty herb is wonderful in dishes where just a little lemon flavor is just enough, and doesn't have the added bitterness or acidic taste of real lemon. For a great traditional Asian flavor combination, try using Citrus Kitchen Mint and Lemon Grass in your next recipe--or try making a delicious stir fry from our grower, Annie!

    Citrus Mint, like the rest of the Mint family, will also keep well in a pot or container if you don't want it to overrun your garden. Grow it indoors for a fresh citrus perfume all year round!

    Carrot Salad with Minted Yogurt

    1 Cup grated carrot
    1/3 Cup Walnuts, finely chopped
    2 TLB raisins
    1 TLB Fresh Mint leaves, finely diced
    1 TLB lemon juice
    1/2 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt
    Salt and Pepper to taste

    In a small bowl, whisk together mint, lemon juice and yogurt until smooth. In another bowl. toss the carrots, walnuts and raisins. Stir in the yogurt mix and combine thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper, and chill for at least an hour before serving!
