Spearmint Leaves, herb of the Mentha genus, comprising about 25 species of perennial herbs. Certain related genera of the mint family (Lamiaceae, or Labiatae). Spearmint is native to Europe, and Asia, naturalized in North America. Spearmint widely distributed throughout the temperate and subtropical areas of the world.
Dried leaves are great to flavor many foods particularly soups, salads, meats, fish, sauces and vegetables. True mints belong to the Mentha genus. They have square stems, opposite and aromatic leaves. Small flowers usually of a pale purple, pink, or white color arranged in clusters. All Mentha abound in volatile oil, contained in resinous dots in the leaves and stems. Oils of mints are scents in perfumery and as flavoring in candy, liqueur, gum, dentifrices, and medicines. The mint of the Bible is presumed to be Mentha longifolia because it is extensively cultivated in the Middle East.
