Cherry Stem Infusion or Tea

Cherry stems make an enjoyable infusion, so save the stems! In France, this infusion is often taken for its detox/diuretic properties. Make a good amount of the dried cherry stems at one time, then make small amounts of tea from this when you want.

directions

  • When you pit cherries, put the cherries in a bowl, and put the stems aside on some newspaper.
  • Dry the stems on the newspaper for several days in normal heat, until dry.
  • For this recipe, I gave the figure of 8 ounces, but that is arbitrary. '80 stems' is also arbitrary. I couldn't continue with the recipe any other way according to the given formats. Any amount can be done.
  • To make a reasonable amount of tea, take a small handful of cherry stems and boil them in a small saucepan of water, about 1 liter, or 2 pints. Let it all boil for 5 minutes, then remove from the heat and allow to infuse for 10 minutes or so. You will get almost 5 teacups per liter.
  • Drink 3 cups a day, at intervals away from the meal, to promote elimination.
