There are some seasonal flavors that are easy to figure out. Pumpkins are harvested in the fall, for example–even though most of us aren’t harvesting our own pumpkins, that’s how pumpkins came to be associated with fall. But what about peppermint? What is it about this flavor that makes it such a big part of the holidays? Is it because the cool, minty flavor is reminiscent of the weather outside? I don’t know, but I do know this: I love peppermint! Here are some of my favorite peppermint treats for the holidays.
