Roadside Peppermint::

               Quick stop at a roadside stand this afternoon while out and about. The peppermint reminded me of Mom. Soon, I'll be sitting with her enjoying a cup or two. Definitely, time for me to make some peppermint tea of my own.
    Here's a tip before cooking. Place cleaned peppermint in the freezer 24-48hrs. before cooking. I don't know the scientific reason behind this method but, makes for great tea. When ready, add 1 gallon of water in a large pot. Add 1 bunch of peppermint. Boil for 10 minutes. Cool, refrigerate, enjoy! Mom doesn't extract the peppermint leaves after the tea is completely cool and ready for refrigeration. She says it adds more flavor. I think she's right on with this.
    The tea of course is unsweetened. Sweeten to taste :)
Tomorrow, is Thursday already. Where has this week gone?
