Peppermint is a plant that tends to keep to itself until someone decides to harvest it for consumption purposes.
Peppermint has a very ‘clean’ flavor, which is found appealing by most people. It’s a popular ingredient of candy
and chewing gum
, which are in turn frequently enjoyed after meals. Peppermint tends to pair better with sweet flavors
rather than savory
, but this may be a result of a lack of experimentation.
