Herbal wine

You’ll find my latest project in the current issue of Edible Austin. I am so excited by the prospect of herbal wines as an avenue of incorporating healing plants into a historically more common form of medicine. You can read the column and grab a copy of the mag for free if you’re a local Austinite at any of these locations, or online here.

I have two recipes in the issue, one for Juniper Wine, a great formula to have on hand for clearing infections, stimulating digestion and even thwarting cedar fever, and Honey Rose Wine, used for improving digestion, relaxing the nervous system, boosting reproductive energy and uplifting spirits.

Experimentation with other plants and formulas encouraged, I can’t wait to hear about other types of herbal wines you all create!

I'm looking forward to trying the Honey Rose Wine. I'm a big fan of floral flavors, and I'll be proud if I can pull it off. Relaxing the nervous system seems like a great return on investment of time.
