September Infusion

Posted in food by menno1976 on September 11, 2009

For a great September Infusion (my mum’s recipe) try this:

1 tbsp. Elder blossom
1 tbsp. Birch leaves
1 tbsp. Horsetail
1 tbsp. Lavender
1 tbsp. Nettles

I always make it from dried herbs, I don’t know if it would work with fresh ones (might be a bit too grassy).

Just tear up the leaves and pour boiling water over it.

I don’t know if this herbal infusion is good for anything, but I just like the delicate flavour of Lavender and Elder. You can add some honey if you like it a bit sweeter (it’s already quite sweet because of the flowers). It’s also nice to have it chilled as an ice tea.
