Spearmint is a fun herb to have in your garden.

There's a lot of great treats you can make with it, and it's flavor is pleasing to just about everybody.

Of all the things that you can do with fresh spearmint, we think the best thing you can make is some spearmint flavored ice cream!

This ice cream recipe has a mild "spearminty" flavor...just what my husband likes. He prefers a subtle taste as opposed to the "in-your-face" flavor that I love.

If you'd like a stronger flavor, simply let the leaves steep in warm milk for 10-15 minutes.

Serving Tip: Garnish ice cream with a fresh sprig of spearmint!
