More info

Peppermint extract is made from the essential oils of peppermint leaves. It has a distinctive minty flavour and aroma that can be used in a variety of ways. Peppermint extract is traditionally used in holiday cooking to flavour candy, beverages, cookies, cakes and other baked goods.

In addition to its use in cooking, peppermint extract is also commonly used for medicinal purposes, such as to soothe upset stomachs, sore throats and symptoms of the common cold and flu. Because of its cooling properties it is often applied topically to the skin to relieve inflammation and itching.

Peppermint extract should not be confused with peppermint oil, which is more concentrated and stronger. As a general rule, peppermint oil is about four times as strong as peppermint extract.

Cooking Ideas

Peppermint extract can be used to add a peppermint flavor to baked goods, desserts, and candy, particularly candy canes, mints, and peppermint patties.

Peppermint extract can be substituted in recipes with peppermint oil (a stronger ingredient primarily used in candy-making), crème de menthe, or peppermint schnapps. Please note: if the recipe does not call for heating, the alcoholic properties of liqueurs may remain present in the finished product.

Peppermint extract may also be added to hot water to create peppermint tea.
