Herb Day: Good Things in Jars for Christmas! Thursday, November 3rd
Chili, Cinnamon, Rosemary As we head for Deep Winter, it's good to keep warm and cosy - and to keep things moving in our circulation.

Think of Chilli, Ginger, Cinnamon and Rosemary - and you probably feel warm already! Preparations of these and other herbs (including Chestnuts) in alcohol, oil, vinegar, tea and cooking are justly famous for warming the cockles.  
Rosemary house 
Flowering Rosemary

In this session we'll revise how to make a basic cream - and then modify it with tinctures or essential oils to suit friends and family.
Haw (Crataegus oxyacanthoides
Ripe Crataegus berries, all ready for making Hawthorn Brandy 


And, using a traditional method to gauge what qualities our loved ones might lack, we will look at how to remedy that with herbs. Even a simple tailored skin cream can help a person, especially when applied to key points on the body.


Jar of herbs

From Ben's Store of Wisdom...
Bittersweet (Solanum dulcamara)
Dog Rose Hips
"Even late in October, the evening sun is still warming hedgerow Sloes, Hips, Haws, Guelder Rose berries, Rosemary flower buds and - beware! - Bittersweet berries.
The first morning frosts have come, so now is the time to pick the Sloes and put them in your vodka (vodka is more neutral tasting than gin - and likely better for you). Try a jar with some sugar - and one without: if the Sloes are sweet enough to start with, the resulting Christmas toddy will be cheery enough!
Sloe closer
Sloes are ready now
You can do the same with many other hedgerow berries but if you're not sure what they are - don't pick them. If you'd like help identifying any herbs or berries bring them along to our Winter Herb Day."
