I have some growing but I am waiting for it to get a little bigger before I start using it.

A friend chops it fine and sprinkles it on her vanilla ice cream. I will try this soon.

I bought some seedlings today and made sure to get some chocolate mint.

Bacardi 1, 4Meandthem and Tax Lady,

Firstly, living in the centre of a major Metropolis is the choice over BBQ and garden for herbs ... However, now you all have me thinking about growing some chocolate mint herb too ... I do have Basil, Oregano, Italian Parsley ... I love Basil and have several as, I use it so frequently as well as the other two.

Prob is, we do not have a terrace ! We have a stunner terrace overlooking the Adriatic in Gargano, Puglia ... Perhaps, I shall plant it there ... It is so DRY in Madrid ...

Thanks for contributing your thoughts too.
Margi.

Margi,
All you need is a window sill. The smell is pretty good! I keep catching my boy pulling off leaves to smell.

Chocolate mint is fabulous, great to add to hot chocolate. It is however very invasive. I would probably keep it contained to a pot. Mine got so out of hand that I had to get rid of the majority of it I have never used it in a savory dish, but might give it a try.
