Did you know that one pound of mint oil will flavor 135,000 sticks of gum? The oil is extracted from mint using a steam distillation process and is highly concentrated.

I must admit that I had no idea about the mint-pound-to-gum-ratio 😀
The recipe looks good!
Ha, ha! Me neither. There are some pretty crazy statistics out there.
Thanks for the nice comment about the recipe – fresh herbs have a way of making everything taste better. 🙂
BTW: Just had some fresh mint tea now from the mint that grows on my balcony.
Nice! Fresh mint is great for tea. I like to put a sprig in iced tea, or serve with fresh fruit.
