Marshmallow tea - Thursday, April 7, 2011

Final day with Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis) for now. I did not try making marshmallow in hot water as it wasn’t suggested. According to Missy, Marshmallow’s mucilage is best extracted in cold water.

Tonight, I will start a cold infusion of Nettles (Urtica dioica) that I will drink cold tomorrow. While spending time with Nettles, I also plan on making a warm infusion. We tried both of these in class last Sunday and I enjoyed both. According to Missy, Nettles are rich in vitamins A, C, and K; protein; iron; potassium; silicon; and other minerals. I do enjoy all of these vitamins and look forward to Nettles tea.
