    I have lots of fresh mint and wanted to make mint oil that will keep for a long time.
    Its for deserts, I imagine though it could be used for other things as well.

    Pinarello,

    Mint oil is easy to make,just bruse the leaves, make sure they are very clean and dry and use a neutrial oil. However, to your statement of holding on to it for a long time, I recommend against this because it really in good for a couple of weeks.

    You could make a mint vodka instead...crush the leaves and cover with vodka, wait a few weeks (the longer the better) then you will have a "mock" mint exstract
