February 2012

Are you or your kids needing an immune boost over the "flu season"? This delicious honey tincture will insure that you and your loved ones stay healthy and happy!

Recipe:

1/4 cup yarrow flowers
3/4 cup whole elderberries
1/4 cup echinacea purpurea herb
Raw honey

Instructions:

Pour all herbs in a glass pint jar and cover with honey. If honey is stiff, warm until easily poured and fill 1/2 inch from the top. Cap jar and place on top of a towel or rag in a medium sized pot. Fill the pot with water to right below the rim of the lid on the glass jar, and turn the stove on the lowest setting (warm, not boiling). Cook for three days, occasionally adding more water to the pot (NEVER pour cold water on a hot glass jar, as it will crack or explode). After three days remove honey tincture and set aside to cool. Strain the herbs with a cheese cloth or clean tee shirt material. Label and store in a wide mouth jar for easy access.

Stay healthy! Take a walk in the park. Climb a hill and sing your favorite song. Enjoy your good health and live life to the fullest!

FDA Warning: Do not feed honey to infants under one year of age.
