If you decide to make mint ice cream with chocolate chips, and go outside to your abundance of wildly-growing (I know someone planted it sometime, but it’s still growing, wildly) mint to gather cuttings, and you realize as you bring it in that it’s spearmint, not mint mint, just STOP. Stop, and think. Will spearmint ice cream be worth the effort? You will most likely come to the conclusion that it’s not. If you come to that conclusion, you are a better person than I am. If you don’t, you too will end up with a liter of spearmint-chocolate chip ice cream that no one is going to eat.
