Okay, I cheated. I poured hot water over the mint, but I didn't like how it turned the mint dark...so, I added fresh mint to cool water. The cubes with the boiling water are stronger, but the co...

I do ice cubes of many herbs, the hot water releases the oils in the plants, replacing the darkened, spent herbs with fresh after cooling is preferable. Just pop out the frozen cubes into labele...

This was a great idea... I just put cold water in my trays since I didn't want wilted mint; I just tried one in a cup of tea and it was nice!... Thanks for a great way to use up this mint (hubby...

These are very minty ice cubes! We have an ice maker in our freezer, and I think I got rid of all of our ice cube trays at some point. I could only find a tiny ice cube tray that goes in the m...

Ummmm! I buy mint all the time but sometimes don't use it right away and it ends up tossed out. Never again. I have a few of these in my tea right now and will be using them in lemonade and sp...

So simple, but yet so pretty and effective. I did replace the "cooked" mint with a fresh leaf after it cooled and before placing in the freezer. They do enliven a glass of ice tea or lemonade!...

These were neat. Hubby gave me that "Chick, you crazy?" look when I was making them, but he loved them in his lemonade! Score one for Skuba. :) Thanks!

These were easy, and very refreshing! Thanks!!
