Dehydrating Mint



I've always had a plentiful growth of mint in my back yard but to my surprise I found a patch of it growing under my Mountain Ash tree in the front yard. This was the perfect opportunity for me to try out my latest garage sale find,my new Snackmaster Dehydrator, which cost me a whopping $10! I washed the leaves really well , picked them off of the stems and then place them on the trays of the dehydrator.


It only took a couple of hours before I was brewing a delicious cup of organic mint tea. Normally in the summer I just use the fresh leaves, but it's nice to know that once Autumn arrives, I can harvest all of my mint to enjoy throughout the cold winter weather. Dehydrators are a good thing!
