Watermint – The Hidden Treasure of Nearly Any River Bank!

Watermint – The Hidden Treasure of Nearly Any River Bank!

What is it? 

Watermint is a herb of the mint variety. It grows along waterways, in storm ditches and near rivers and other waterways. I have even found some in Victoria Park in East London. Watermint has thick dark green leaves tinged with purple, deeply veined and slightly hairy.

How to use it?

The oils in the leaves add flavor to cooking and leaves add a bright zing to salads. You can dry the leaves for use as a tea, which aids in digestion and calms ulcers. You can also make a syrup out of the leaves by boiling them in sugary water. And if you feel like entertaining dinner guests, dip the leaves in melted chocolate and let freeze in the freezer. This dessert was a great hit when I had people over!

Let us know if you’ve tried it and how you liked it!
