Storage: Store dulce buttons in their plastic clamshell in your refrigerator.
Shelf Life: Up to 10 days.
Dulce buttons are extremely potent, so even one goes a long way.
They can be used (either whole or crumbled) in ice cream, salads or homemade marshmallows, with fresh fruit (particularly red berries), or with dark chocolate.
Dulce button leaves can be used similarly to fresh mint, either cut into chiffonade strips or candied.
Both the flowers and the leaves can be used as cutting edge mixology ingredients in cocktails, just use the flowers sparingly to avoid overpowering other flavors. Try substituting the leaves for traditional mint in American-style mojitos, or pairing them with iced tea.
