Which of These Herbs Belong to the Mint Family?

Herbs are a great way to add flavour to almost anything you’re preparing, but what happens if you realize that you’re fresh out or don’t care for an herb that your recipe calls for? Most herbs are members of two plant groups, the carrot family and the mint family.

Depending on what you have handy, you can make a substitution.  This works best if the two herbs are from the same family .
