I'm making homemade Peppermint Schnapps to give away for Christmas and I've seen tons of recipes that call for Peppermint extract but I'd like to use fresh if I can find it. Does anyone know where I can get fresh peppermint in bulk in LA?? The recipe I'd like to use calls for 8 cups (!!) of fresh mint leaves and I'll probably double it. Thanks!!

    Fresh mint is usually spearmint, but you might find peppermint. Peppermint is more delicate , smaller leaves. I have seen large bunches of spearmint at the Kosher Market in WEst LA, on Santa Monica, and really good prices on all their vegies. I would check any good kosher or persian market that might be close to you.
