mint vs spearmint

E2e03da3 70fd 4deb 8e87 82434abe986c  042710 0374

Whenever I try a recipe calling for mint I choose spearmint over mint leaves as I find the mint too strong and almost artificial in taste. Was curious to know what you prefer.

Spearmint FTW! Peppermint, aka mint, is good for use with chocolate, but nothing much else.

Spearmint is the mint I'm most likely to find at the market, so I go with that. But I always give it a good sniff and taste first because its quality and intensity can vary so much and influence how much I use in any given recipe. It would be fun to try this with different mints, like pineapple mint or orange mint. I think I have a kitchen experiment to look forward to this spring!
