For the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. We’re pretty relaxed over here, and stories and photos are as welcome as menus and recipes. When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the button to include with your post. It ties us together visually. Then fill in the boxes of this linky tool to join the fun!
Food on Fridays with Ann
My stomach was a little queasy the other day, so I started to pull a box of mint tea from the cupboard when I remembered that I have some fresh mint growing in a container.
This spring, a friend of mine dug up a start for my garden, and it’s grown enough that I had enough to pluck some leaves and brew a cup of tea.
This probably doesn’t count as foraging, but it always feels rewarding to use something growing out the back door, whether I planted it or it popped up on its own.

Thank you for hosting! I love mint tea for settling a stomach! If you ever want to own your own grain mill I wanted to let you know I’m doing a giveaway on my blog! On The Home Front

I haven ‘t thought of (real) mint tea for a long time. I do hope yours turned out great. Lately I have been drinking green tea in the evenings, but I might look up some mint for a change.

I need to start an herb garden in pots–basil and mint for starters sound wonderful. Your plant looks so healthy. And a few of those on the chocolate fudge pie would be delish!

Ohhh, we have loads of mint! I’ve thought about making tea with it before, but never have!
