Unless kept under control, mint will take over the world.
Do not hesitate to use crushed or whole leaf in yogurt and chutneys.
You are doing the world of everything that is not mint a great service.
In fact, only the mothers of mint will ask you to stop – please stop,
they will say, and they will say it a thousand upon a thousand times.
