3. Varieties of Mint
While peppermint is commonly found and used, it has many other, less common relatives that are great additions to any chef’s repertoire. One example is mojito mint, which is also where the eponymous drink gets its name. Because of its mild flavour, mojito mint is also used as a seasoning for most types of meat.
