First thoughts of winter, and first preparations for winter. I like this herbal remedy to aid against colds and flus. It’s a tincture – a very simple way to extract certain properties in alcohol.

The herbs looked so beautiful, with the mixture of flowers and berries and leaves looking like sand art, that I needed to take  a picture before I filled the jar the rest of the way with vodka.

Here’s the recipe. I added lemon balm and thyme, increased the quantities of ginger and orange peel, and left out the honey.
