Peppermint is arguably the matriarch of the mint family, which is a bit odd as peppermint is technically a hybrid of spearmint and watermint. Peppermint escaped into the wild millenniums ago and now grows wild in North America and Europe, though it needs to grow close to its parent species, as it cannot reproduce with other peppermint plants.    Peppermint has a penetrating flavour and cooling effect that is widely used in sauces for lamb and game, and is often steeped in cream and milk for various desserts. It is most often paired with chocolate. In addition, gums, candies, and liquors have been infused with mint since mankind first learned to cook.   Commonly used in herbal tea, mint jelly, as a seasoning for fruit and vegetables, Crushed Peppermint is a commonly used and versatile ingredient. Other great additions include oven roasted potatoes, candied carrots, grain salads, or stuffings for vegetables and poultry.
