Pluto unable to turn her back, gave her the fragrance that we know in order to sweeten the air around her. Peppermint is a natural hybrid of watermint and spearmint that was first described in 1753 by Carl Linnaeus.

Peppermint has a characteristic refreshing and peppery taste. As a seasoning we can use it on rice, vegetables, salads, marinades for fish, pasta, sauces, soups and you can always try the classic English recipe of lamb with mint sauce. We need to be careful while cooking, since we need to add it towards the end, otherwise it will lose its taste. Peppermint can also be used for desserts, liqueurs and refreshing beverages.
