Does anyone know a use for mint leaves other than making mint jelly? Could you make your own mouthwash and what would you add to the leaves?

If you like mint tea, you can make it with fresh mint leaves.
For hot tea, put 3-4 leaves per teabag in the cup/pot, and brew as usual. Bruise the leaves first by pinching them or rolling them to help release the flavor.
I would do a search...I know you can make mouthwash and tooth pastes and stuff with fresh mint.
I'm suprised you haven't been told about Tabouli.
You can Google it and find a recipe.
It is a salad made with mint, parsley, lemon, scallions, tomatoes, and other ingredients.
It is one of my favorites, but I don't make it often. Real yummy.
CLick on this, it has a bunch of mint recipes.
My grandmother used to add mint to iced tea and lemonade. It looks pretty and tastes wonderful.
I made a few batches of mint julep for a recent family week. I found a variety of recipes on line. It was a hit with most everyone.
8 to 10 carrots cleaned and cut into slices (cooked until tender)
1/2 stick butter melted
1 Tcup brown sugar
2 TBSP washed finely chopped mint
When butter is melted add the brown sugar and cook on medium heat approx. 5 minutes.
Add drained carrots to butter/brown sugar. Mix well, coating all of the carrots. Just before serving add in the chopped mint. Stir well coating all and serve.
I like more brown sugar however, some people like less. Try it and decide for yourself. This taste really great!!
If you want to make a refreshing alcoholic drink, you can make mojitos. They are very easy and there are a tons of recipes online because they have become very popular in the last few years. This is how we make ours:
Take two glasses and put a teaspoon of sugar in the bottom of each (more or less). Squeeze 1/2 of a lime in each and add a few mint leaves. Take a spoon and kind of crush the mint into the sugar (it's called muddling!). Fill up the glasses with ice then add a shot or so of white rum and fill it up with club soda. You will want to adjust the proportions to your taste. It is very refreshing, like a mint julep with a tropical feel.
I like to cut up slices of fresh pineapple and sprinkle chopped mint leaves on 'em. Together they are quite special.
I like to put chopped mint leaves on freshly-cut pineapple chunks. Mint and pineapple have a special affinity.
To make mint toothpaste moisten and mix orris root with 1 part peppermint oil to 3 parts safflower or any other bland oil. Mix, then store in an airtight jar.
Mint and scallion soba noodles are a personal favorite.
