- Submerge mint in hot syrup and cool to room temperature. Remove and discard mint. Chill in the refrigerator.
- Cook's Note:

This "Sekanjabin" recipe is for a syrup which can be used to make a drink (sharbat-e sekanjabin). Iranians like to dip lettuce leaves in the undiluted syrup as well for a refreshing summer snack...
This was very good, and very reminiscent of the "shrub" drinks of "olden times".
I replaced the Mint with 2 cups of Rose petals, and simmered them in the pot for 20 minutes, then strained them out.
