    I'm not really sure why I grow all these different mints. Tea is the drink of the devil and I don't go near it . And I don't really like ice cream that much, especially after my one and only ever attempt at making mint ice cream

    Any other ideas what I can do with it?

    Mint Sauce, mint jelly. Good with lamb.

    I do that with the normal mint, but don't fancy banana mint ( or strawberry, or pineapple) sauce with my lamb. I know I'm fussy.

    I like mint sauce on chips

    I love the various mints too - brushing past them, rubbing a leaf, having a nibble - but for cooking its just the bog standard ones.
    Banana mint is a new one for me - strawberry too. I've lost the labels to most of my mints and can't tell them apart but I have basil, moroccan, ?eau de cologne, pineapple and others.

    Anyone fancy a mint cuttings swap?

    I'll do a mint swap with you VC
    I'd love a small basil mint cutting please.
    What would you like?
    Apple
    Strawberry
    Lemon
    Lime
    Chocolate
    I think that's everything that you haven't already got.
    Obviously you can have more than one
    There will be banana later in the year because I'm definitely going to replace mine if he doesn't make it.
