How to Cook Herbs

Herb Preparation Instructions - No Additions


1. Empty the contents of one bag of herbs into a non-aluminium/non-iron pot (use ceramic, glass, pyrex, enamel or stainless steel). 2. Add 600-800 ml of cold water. Stir and leave to soak for 20 minutes to an hour. (Longer is fine, overnight is fine). If you don't have time to do this stage don't worry, start at the next stage. 3. Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat and simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes with the lid off. You should end up with 150-200 mls of liquid. 4. Strain the simmered fluid into a bowl or jug leaving the herbs in the pot. 5. Add another 400ml of cold water to the herbs in the pot and repeat step 3 and then strain into the same bowl or jug so that you mix the two boilings together. 6. Divide this into 2 equal portions, one to take in the morning and one in the afternoon. ( NB.Sometimes according to how much water the herbs absorb, you may need to add more to begin with. The main thing to remember is that you should be aiming to end up with a total amount of 300-400ml (to be divided into two doses each of about 150-200ml, roughly about 2 mugfulls). ) Once you get used to the amount of water needed you can make up to 3 days at a time. Just follow the same process but use 3 bags and triple the amount of water at each step. Store the extra in the fridge and warm it up when needed. If anything is unclear, please let me know. If you experience any unwanted effects, please feel free to stop the herbs and get in touch by phone or email.
