If you thought that honey had only a certain amount of benefits and flavours, you may want to think again! Do you remember those delicious mouth-fresheners that you eat usually at the end of meals? If yes, they most probably contained peppermint, a hybrid mint between spearmint and watermint! Also known as a medicinal herb, peppermint is an excellent flavour when infused with honey! So when I make this infusion honey I automatically feel this ‘fresh aura’ about the honey I plan to infuse! Infusing peppermint with honey is a great way to introduce a new flavour to regular honey, taking the ordinary flavour to another level altogether. Of course, this secret (of infusing peppermint in honey) involves a lot of fluctuations/changes in the temperature of the honey but the result is just worthwhile.
