Tinctures, Vinegars, and Wines

Plant parts that are either insoluble or only partially soluble in water can be extracted with solvents like alcohol or glycerol.

The herb is soaked in the solvent for a period of time, then pressed to render the tincture.

Tinctures can preserve extracted ingredients for 12 months or more.

Herbal vinegars can serve as both medicines and salad dressings.

To make an herbal vinegar, add the herb or herbs of your choice to raw apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar, or malt vinegar.

Allow the herbs to steep for 4 days (agitate the container daily), strain, and then press through a straining cloth and bottle in a dark glass container.

Steeping herbs in wine is a novel and pleasant way to use them medicinally.

Wine doesn’t keep as long as the stronger alcohols, so refrigeration is a good idea.
