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 get by with a little help from our friends

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.
