Philodendron Leaf

MYRTLE

Myrtle is a Mediterranean evergreen shrub whose leaves and blue berries have a flavor similar to juniper and rosemary.  Myrtle was one of the flavoring ingredients in the original recipe for Mortadella, a smoked sausage from Bologna, Italy. (Juniper is now mostly used).

Myrtle leaves are used to produce an aromatic liqueur named 'Mirto' on the islands of Corsica and Sardinia. The dried fruits and flower buds have also been used in cookery since the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans.  The essential oil has been used in soaps and skin care products.
