An unusual little recipe found online posted in response to a recipe request. Both borage flowers and leaves are edible. Because it is a tonic plant for the adrenal glands, borage provides an invaluable support for a stressful lifestyle. Borage is rich in minerals, especially potassium.

  2. Steep the sugar, lemon zest and borage flowers in the hot water for 10 to 15 minutes.
  3. Strain and add the sherry, brandy and apple cider.
