When I was working on a list of ideas for my grab & go gift tutorials, I wanted to add some great cooking recipes. Extracts just made sense. They’re easy to make and they’re useful to have in the kitchen. The best part is that they made use of the mint plants that have gone nuts in my garden! And boy… I LOVE the smell.
