Today I have tried out a recipe for Hawthorn berry honey which I learnt in my herbal course in Herb Mentor (by LearningHerbs) So here is what I did: I took the berries which I had harvested from the Hawthorn tree in the garden, and I smashed them a little, so that the juice could mix with the honey. A waft of lovely rather heavy wooden scent came floating towards me while I was doing that. It’s so simple to make, you put the berries into a clean jar and cover it with honey, making sure that it is mixed well. Important – Don’t crush the seeds inside the berries. Strain after 24 hours or so, and use a little. It is supposed to be good for the heart it says, but I am not taking responsibility for people’s individual decisions of use while on medicines or while ill. Always consult a doctor before using such strong herbal concoctions.
