For several years we’ve been making our own herbal tinctures and infusions. He does the tinctures and I do the teas. Today Ken, along with his lovely assistant Keianna made up five tinctures that were running low.
Below I share a rarely glimpsed area of PrairieFrog land (drumroll…) Ken’s barfice! (“Barfice” is short for barn/office–a little room in the barn.)
Here’s Ken and Keianna’s five steps to a perfect tincture:
1. Get down the herbs from vast stores, high on the barfice shelves.
2. Add appropriate herbs to a quart jar for steeping
3. Put away herbs.
4. Add rum. (This step isn’t pictured because I have an alcohol free blog. )
5. Steep for about a month. (Also not pictured because it would require time lapse photography and be rather dull.)
