Delicious Decoctions – Stovetop drinks made from roots and barks
There’s nothing worse than giving a remedy to someone and it’s wasted because it doesn’t taste good. In this short workshop, you will learn some easy ways to enhance the flavour of roots and barks in decoctions. By boiling plants we can capture many constituents that we might not access with a simple tea infusion. These concentrated concoctions often have stronger flavours and sometimes stronger medicine. Learn the secret to creating formulas that are not only effective medicine, but also taste great! We’ll review appropriate amounts to use, how to hide certain flavours, and how to balance the taste so that it appeals to any palate. Try making a warm decoction in place of your morning’s coffee, and you will increase the amount of phytonutrients you get in a day with simplicity, digestibility, and all the powerful constituents of your medicinal plant allies.
