Spearmint ("dyosmos" in Greek) is Greece's most celebrated culinary herb. It is now given a passport to greatness by Pure Natura in Heraklion, Crete. Hand-harvested for quality and freshness, it livens up savoury and sweet dishes alike.
Spearmint ("dyosmos") is a perennial herb valued for its refreshing properties and heavenly aroma. It is precisely that last characteristic that dyosmos owes its name to since, in ancient Greek, "edyosmos" means "lovely fragrance". It is a self-growing plant found in most of the Mediterranean countries and most of Greece where its sensory traits outdo themselves. Frequent citations on dyosmos in the writings of Hippocrates and Dioscorides lead to the conclusion that, in ancient times, it enjoyed an excellent reputation as a versatile healing herb.
Spearmint belongs to the same family mentha and basil do, an aromatic family that is popular throughout Greece. Its fabulous fragrance is surpassed only by the sense of freshness it releases on the palate. Fresh or dried spearmint are widely used in cooking, pharmaceuticals, supplements, and perfumes. Spearmint infusions are a natural tonic and digestive and ease stomach ache but it is far more widely used in Greek cuisine. Fresh or dried it has been used for hundreds of years in many a Greek traditional recipe. Pure Natura organic spearmint is gathered by hand on the island of Crete and is dried with extra care so that its sensory richness reaches you in all its glory.
