    Bone Man's Note:

    This is a delicious and medicinal tea (for whatever ails you), but you'll have to head for the eastern woodlands to gather the main ingredient, spicebush. Also, it is a seasonal tea as the twigs are best gathered in the Spring after the sap has come up but before the leaves gain any size.

    Yield:

    quarts

    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 ounces spicebush twigs (4"-6" long)
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 2 1/2 quarts water

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Gather the spicebush twigs, stripping off any leaves.

    3. 3
      Place twigs in a three-quart pan and add the water.
    4. 4
      Bring to a rolling boil, uncovered, for 25-30 minutes, until the tea takes on a slightly yellow coloration.

      Strain the tea into a gallon jar, using a colander.
    6. 6
      Add the honey and stir.
    7. 7
      (Sometimes I use plain sugar or sorghum molasses, depending on what is in my cabinet).
    8. 8
      Serve hot.
    9. 9
      You can store it in the refrigerator and microwave it as you use it.

      It will keep for at least a week.

      TIP: 8 ounces of twigs will pretty much fill a three-quart pan.
