Mint Sticky Rolls with Lemon Glaze


My monster mint is on a rampage yo. My spearmint is currently the biggest culprit but other varieties I grow in my garden are proliferating to science fiction proportions.


Those of us who grow our own herbs know that, unless contained, fresh mint can run rampant in a garden. It returns every year with a vengeance. Mine even escapes the raised bed in PA, then it jumps outside the garden enclosure and starts rooting on the lawn outside. It's a mint war at my place I tell ya.


When I expanded my mint variety to include, apple mint, chocolate mint, pineapple mint, orange mint and spearmint, I made sure I grew these in large pots instead of planting them in the ground. I do this both in NYC on our terrace and in the country because if mint has space, it will take it and run.


I am constantly pulling out the extra mint that snakes out of the enclosure and looking for ways to use it up. This German style  sticky roll recipe is a great way to do just that.  As most German go, this one has significantly less sugar but I made up for that by pouring a sweet lemon glaze over the finished rolls. 


You can also substitute the mint with another herb or mix of fresh herbs. what ever grows abundant in your garden or whatever variety you have on hand.
