Spearmint, used extensively in Mediterranean cuisine, has a sharp, sweet taste with an unusual coolness. Mix it with oregano and cinnamon to make Greek keftedes or add it to a cucumber and yogurt salad. Fry a teaspoon of dried mint in oil and add it to a Turkish or Iranian style dish before serving for some added authenticity. You can't go wrong with a mint flavored lamb, either! Have a sweet tooth? Use it in homemade chocolate mint ice cream or vanilla mint cookies.
