Cordials, Elixirs, Syrups & Infused Wines
Food and medicine are intimately intertwined and at the intersection of this connection there is a space for pleasure and a bit of indulgence. Many of our herbal medicines can be at once good for our bodies and minds as well as pleasing to eat and drink. In this class we will be diving into herbal medicines in the form of cordials, elixirs, syrups, and infused herbal wines. We will make each preparation and talk about its unique history of use as well as various recipes and ways of incorporating each one into our lives and kitchens.
This time of year is ripe with festivities and gatherings to share food and medicine with loved ones. These drinks and delights are both medicinal and enjoyable and have been used historically since the early days of folk medicine. You will go home with 2-3 preparations as well as a list of recipes and ideas for coming up with your own!
*Note: this class will be making primarily alcohol-based preparations (and a few that are non-alcoholic) however these are not meant to be drunk in excess but rather sipped and enjoyed in small quantities as they have been historically intended. These preparations are medicinal in nature.
