More Plantain Salve On The Way

We’ve got a new batch of plantain salve started. Typically each batch of plantain leaves will infuse in their oil for a year before being turned into salve. Thanks to the free range chickens, our land produces exceptional plantain.

To keep the oil from spoiling with the extra water content in the leaves they are wilted first, in this case on Miss Della’s playhouse roof. After a few hours in the sun they are ready to go in their jar of olive oil and into the shed where they will rest until next spring.IMG_9786IMG_9794
