Cooking with Peppermint Extract
What is Peppermint Extract?
Peppermint Extract is just one of many pure extracts you can use to enhance your recipes. Extracts are concentrated flavoring agents that have been distilled from beans, nut oils, fruits, and spices that have been dissolved in an alcohol base. Our pure extracts can be used to add flavor to candy, beverages, specialty dishes, baked goods, and desserts.
In order to get the best flavor possible from extracts, it's important to remember the following storage tips:
- Close the bottle tightly after each use.
- Store your extracts in a cool, dark place.
These simple steps will help prevent evaporation so that you can ensure that your extracts provide sensational flavor each and every time you use them.
