Purchasing

When buying fresh Orange Mint, the leaves should be dark green with no yellow or brown spots.  Dried Orange Mint leaves will be more faded, but should still retain a little green color.

Storage

Fresh Orange Mint will last about a week refrigerated. It can also be wrapped in foil and plastic and frozen for several months with little loss of flavor.

Culinary Uses

Orange Mint imparts a clean fresh scent and a strong mint flavor with sweet overtones. Orange Mint is used fresh and dried, in both sweet and savory dishes.  It is delicate and bruises easily. Be careful when handling this delicate herb.
