We have become quite the gardeners! We are familiarizing ourselves with all of the different herbs in our garden. Today the children were picking mint from the garden and eating it! Being that it was a hot day, we thought it would be nice and refreshing to make lemon/mint water. When we looked it up on the i pad, we found a recipe for mint-rosemary-lemon water.
We all worked together picking mint and rosemary from the garden. We washed it, and then put it in a pitcher. Some of the children enjoyed tasting and smelling it on their own.
We took turns mashing the herbs with a wooden spoon to release the flavors. We added fresh lemon juice, ice and water.
