I use the bay leaves for stock of course, but I like to use the mint in canning. Dried mint also has medical uses as well if I am not mistaken.
Mint is an easily grown and dried herb which has a number of uses both medicinal as well as culinary. Mint is a general pick-me-up, good for colds, flu and fevers. Herbalists add that it also helps digestion, rheumatism, hiccups, stings, ear aches, flatulence and throat and sinus ailments.
