There are about 20 varieties of mint and the chopped leaves of nearly all go well with grilled lamb and veal, in making mint jelly, and to garnish fruit cups. Mint sprigs are especially good to complement new potatoes and nearly any dish with carrots, eggplant or peas. Mint is also a favorite for making teas and tissanes. All versions of mint like rich soil and the roots run under- ground to send up numerous shoots. The best way to contain a mint plant from spreading too far and choking the roots of neighboring plants is to place it in a pot and sink this either into the ground or a window box. Mint should be cut back every time fresh shoots appear, and if the plant becomes too dense new plants may be started from shoots. Even though mint is always at its best when used fresh, the leaves may be dried or frozen.
