My mom shared this recipe with me. If your mint is growing as furiously as mine, maybe you'd like to try this too! It sure makes a quick way to serve meadow tea when friends are coming over!
2 qts. water
4 c. mint leaves, packed
3 c. sugar - or to your taste. I use 2 cups.
In large kettle, bring water & sugar to a boil. Boil 5 min. Turn off heat. Add the mint leaves & let stand until cold. Strain mint leaves. To use, mix 1 part concentrate to 3 parts water. I freeze the concentrate in quarts, which then makes 1 gallon.
