I have a whole bunch of mint. I'd rather make food out of it than have it rot in the vegetable drawer like the last few batches.... What should I make?

I found a couple mint pesto recipes. I have a whole bunch of cilantro, too, (oh, and pine nuts as well) so that'd probably work, but I'm not sure what to put it on.

I was also thinking about trying some kind of seriously mint ice cream, but I don't have an ice-cream maker, so it would probably be more like granita, which is nowhere near as cool.

You can freeze it in ice-cube trays for later use. I looked up instructions in case I was remembering wrong, but it turned out i was right!:

Clean, wash and chop cilantro or mint leaves finely. Fill each cube in a ice cube tray with the finely chopped cilantro or mint leaves. Top each cube with cold water and freeze. The cilantro or mint cubes can be dropped into curries etc. on an as needed basis.

You could also make a big pitcher of Mojitos...
