Soon after the snow is cleared off the ground, first herb to sprout at my home garden is Mint. It is always a joy to use home grown mint in abundance over the store bought bunches. After all its just footsteps away, truly organic, as fresh as possible and can be turned into tasty chutneys within minutes after its plucked.

I am not sure about the variety of the Mint plant I have in my garden. It is not as pungent as Indian mint that has a stronger flavor. For that reason to get more aroma in the Mint chutney I use twice the quantity of leaves. This way it is adding up more greens to daily intake.
