Peppermint Leaves, Dried

Peppermint Leaves, Dried
(Peppermint Leaves, Dried) Dried peppermint leaves are a wonderful addition to many ethnic recipes such as Armenian and Greek. The thing we like most about dried peppermint leaves is that they retain a strong peppermint aroma, which makes it great for making mint tea. It is most commonly thought of as a flavoring for tea, candy, ice cream (hopefully vegan), and other products such as toothpaste. Peppermint is a cross between spearmint and watermint, which grow in the wild, but is mostly cultivated today. It was first catalogued in England in 1753. We could not find any complete nutritional information for dried peppermint leaves, so we have included only the values for fresh peppermint leaves. We believe that the nutritional information for 1 teaspoon of dried peppermint leaves would approximate the values for the 2 tablespoons of fresh leaves (without the water).
