Honeys, Glycerites, & Vinegar

We recently harvested honey from our hive; a few days later our Lemon Balm needed trimming. What perfect timing. I put all the trimmings into a 4 oz. jar and topped with honey. This sat in the window for the next 28 days being flipped each day.

The same week I had to go to the pool store for chlorine, the manager has allergy issues and was fighting hard that day. I offered to bring her some Nettle Honey to see if it would help her. When I got home, I filled a 4 oz. jar mostly full of dried nettle leaf, topped with fresh honey and macerated for 28 days in the window being flipped daily.

After straining the honeys, I rinsed the jars in hot water, poured this, the marc from the honeys, and enough hot water to fill the French press. This infused overnight and was a lovely drink the next day.

Nettle Glycerite; Alfalfa Glycerite

Last month I was looking into things to help our older dog and decided that nettle and alfalfa would be good for him. I know that I can’t get enough tea into him so glycerites are my current answer.

We all need more vitamins and minerals in our diet; when I was in Herbalism for Beginners earlier this year, I formulated a tea to help with this. Given that vinegar is great at extracting vitamins and minerals it seems the perfect solvent for this.
