Please join us Friday, December 8th, for our second class in our Holiday Gift Making Series, Infused Honeys and Vinegars with Caroline Caswell.
We are deep in the season of Autumn, approaching the longer, cooler nights of Winter. During this shift of seasons, we can lean on our honey, vinegar, and plant allies. In this class, we will learn to work with the synergistic powers of honey and vinegar to make medicinal plant preparations. Honey is antimicrobial liquid gold and adds a sweet preservative effect to vinegar’s vigor in an oxymel. The class fee includes all materials. Each student will go home with their own medicinal honey, oxymel, and new-found knowledge of medicinal plants. This class is especially friendly to those who would like to know more about nonalcoholic medicinal preparations.
$40 per person or $100 for all three classes of our Holiday Gift Making Series.
