Most conventional brands of dried mint have a stale, papery taste. That's not the case with Burlap and Barrel's version, which is grown on the banks of the Euphrates River in southern Turkey and has a balanced flavor and intense aroma. The leaves are also noticeably more vibrant than most dried mint, an indicator of their freshness.
These Euphrates Mint Leaves are so fresh that you can simply steep them to make a wonderfully flavorful mint tea. Or pair them with Silk Chili Flakes
in our Turkish-inspired Chili-Red Pepper Chicken Kebabs (Tavuk Şiş)
or Mint and Browned Butter Yogurt Dip
—for the latter, start with half the amount of fresh mint the recipe calls for, and adjust to taste. The mint's natural sweetness is also a perfect counterpoint for nutty-rich Pistachio-Mint Beef Kofte
and brightens up our earthy Baked Persian Cauliflower Omelet
