Delicata Mint Tops
Choose 50, 100, or 150 tops.
Delicata mint is a beautiful grey-green serrated mint variant with soft leaves. Its flavor is a more mild version of spearmint that trails off quickly.
Herb tops are clusters of herb leaves on the stem rather than herb sprigs. The large impressive leaves on an herb top make beautiful garnishes for desserts, entrees, and cocktails and add vibrant color and flavor to dishes.
Store delicata mint tops in your refrigerator in their plastic clamshell.
Roughly 7 to 10 days.
RECIPES & TIPS
You can use delicata mint tops as you would conventional spearmint in most recipes. However, because of their more mild flavor and beautiful appearance, it is better suited to garnishing than use as an ingredient.
Delicata mint is a particularly good choice for desserts featuring fresh mint leaves where you’re concerned about fresh mint overpowering other ingredients.
