I lived in the Idaho mountains for a while when I was a boy. It seemed everyone had spearmint growing up there. It was pretty nice to eat it fresh. I remember it being sweet--or so I thought. I bought a spice rack not long ago, and there was ground spearmint in it. It didn't taste sweet at all! Are there more than one kind of spearmint plants? Is the process of drying and pulverizing the spearmint make it taste different? Or maybe my memory is getting cloudy? I am forty....
