Mint Glazed Fresh Fruit

Hi everyone!

Have you grown mint or currently grow mint? There are a lot of different mints out there. We grow Peppermint, Spearmint, Apple Mint, Chocolate Mint, Orange mint, Lime Mint and a couple of others.

I love all the mints. They can be used in so many ways. And they are generally so easy to grow. If you haven’t grown mint you will want to keep in mind that they grow and spread quickly and easily!

Keeping them in contained areas is you best bet otherwise, they will run amuck! We have our three main mints in oak barrels.

Apple Mint:






Besides using our mints in teas, mints are wonderful in so many other dishes.

Infusing them in honey makes a delicious glaze for cakes, pancakes, and other baked goods. It is also wonderful for glazing fresh fruit!


I made an Apple mint honey glaze the other day.

I used:

About a half a cup of honey

1 Tablespoon of dried Apple Mint

Bring to a boil, stirring regularly. Once it hits the boil, take the heat down to low. When it stops boiling, add about 1/4 cup of fruit juice and stir in. Simmer for about 5 minutes.

I used peach juice for this glaze. You could use pineapple juice, pear juice or apple juice.

Once it has cooled down you can pour it over your fresh chopped fruit and toss. If this glaze starts to seize up, just add a little more juice until it is liquid.


The leftover juice is so delicious! Use it in cakes or smoothies!

Even if you don’t have a lot of room, grab a planter and plant some mint. You won’t regret it!

  1. My partner and I absolutely love your blog and find the
    majority of your post's to be precisely what I'm looking for. Does one offer guest writers to write content for you personally? I wouldn't mind writing a post or elaborating on many of the subjects you write with regards to here. Again, awesome website!

  2. I am a huge fan of mint and a new follower!

  3. Hey Diann: Happy to follow you here, too. I'm all about the herb(s). My all time favorite... has to be Dill weed. I like to take bunches of fresh dill stalks, and hang them in the kitchen so it smells like you're canning homemade dill pickles. Also you can just pull the weed off as you need it.
    Glad I found you here.
