Store Mint Herb Crystals™ in their jar (or another air-tight container) in a cool, dark, dry place.
Shelf Life: Approximately six months.
Mint Herb Crystals™ can be used as a finishing touch/garnish for desserts, fruit salads & more. Try sprinkling them on ice cream, frosted cakes & cupcakes, etc.
These crystals can be ground (using a mortar & pestle, spice grinder or two spoons) into smaller crystals or powder (which will have a lighter color). Once in smaller particles, they can be used to rim cocktail glasses for extra color & flavor.
For desserts, pair them with flavors like cream, chocolate, fruit (especially berries, citrus fruit & melons), brandy, yogurt, tea (green or black), basil (try them with Basil Herb Crystals™), cardamom, and/or coconut. They will also work with some savory dishes (when their sweetness works with the balance of the rest of the dish) - try pairing them with lamb!
Though they won't really impart flavor, they can also be put on top of cookies or folded into cookie dough before baking for decoration.
