You may remember I went to a ' Beat The Winter Blues' herbal remedies workshop in January at The Steel Rooms, held by the very lovely Ali English.
For this workshop we used nettle tops, violets and a whole host of other such exciting ingredients.
We started by brewing up a lemon detox decoction.
There's lots of chopping, peeling and creativity involved!
We then enjoyed the fruits of our labour and sipped our lemon and nettle tea.
It was really refreshing!
The next recipe was for an immune boost syrup, just the thing if you are starting to feel run down, or you have the beginnings of a cold.
I left the mathematics and measuring out to my trusty partners in crime... Thanks chucks!
A jar of our very own medicine to take home!
I really enjoyed myself, can't wait for the next one!
So, basket full of herbal goodness, I had a potter around Brigg before setting off home.
(My favourite little antiques shop...)
I also gave my new granny glasses a test run, cheap as chips from good ol' Asda's.
Hope you had a fab weekend too.
