Put a little chiffonade of fresh mint in with peas...it really compliments the flavor.
You can also make mint jelly, which is supposed to be good with lamb.

We sometimes add mint to a chuck roast. I cook it as if for pot roast and gravy in a slow cooker adding red wine..At the last 20 min of cooking I load it up with fresh mint then serve the gravy over thick slices of french bread with meat and some of the cooked mint on top.

I love mint and always have it in the fridge. I drink it with my hot tea daily. Cardamom pods or fresh mint are what I choose for tea.

My mom grows mint back home in TN she grows 4 different kinds. The chocolate mint is divine I used it making desserts last time I was in.
