Lavender mint produces small, delicate purple flowers in the late summer and fall. This mint is unusual and unique in its contribution to any culinary arsenal. It has a minty floral flavor reminiscent of lavender, which is where it gets its name. When using lavender mint, keep in mind that a little goes a long way. A few sprigs of lavender mint is usually all it takes for most recipes. Like all mints, keep it in a container if you don’t want it to take over.
