I adapted this recipe from one I found in the book Little House in the Suburbs (great book, btw).
What you need:
- 1/2 cup white vinegar
- 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup tabasco peppers with the stems cut off
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tbsp garlic
Simmer the salt, peppers, and vinegar for 5-10 minutes. Make sure to do this in a well-ventilated area.

...which made me google what I could do with all this mint
...which is when I ran across a recipe for a pesto made with mint!

1 1/2 cups fresh mint leaves
