Basil and Mint Coins
Our two favorite herbs together- Basil & Mint!
Basil serves at a wonderful finishing touch to many dishes. The popular herb can be used in a Thai inspired coconut milk curry, add flavor to stewed tomatoes, or as the base of a pesto.
Mint is another popular aromatic herb. It can be used fresh in desserts and beverages alike. The dried leaves can also be steeped in hot water for a refreshing tea. Our favorite use is to blend the fresh leaves with ice, agave and lemon to make a mint lemonade. Pairing fresh mint with whipped cream and berries makes for an easy and delicious dessert.
Our basil & mint seed coins are made of recycled paper pulp embedded with seeds. We then letterpress print each coin and tie them in a stack of 20 coins fastened with hemp twine. The set is tucked in a gift bag with planting instructions.
We recommend planting approximately five coins per 5 inches.
