I have a lot of peppermint I want to use for cooking. Please tell me how to use it for cooking.

Peppermint is used for tea, and to flavour desserts and drinks. Peppermint patties, fudge, ice cream, cookies, candies are some of the desserts in which peppermint is used. Other mints with a sweeter mint flavour such as spearmint are preferred for cooking. But the more spicy tasting peppermint can be used to add a special twist to dishes such as cucumber salad and Thai dumplings.

How does peppermint help prevent or help control sickness?

Peppermint tea is one of the most reliable remedies for mild stomach upset and nausea. It is also helpful for colds.
