Some cedar tree tincture all the way to NYC from Indiana. 🌲🌲🌲 I got the idea for this from my favorite podcast, Gastropod, that looks at food through the lens of science and history. (Highly, highly recommend!! 🙌) One of my favorite episodes is about Native Americans in Minnesota who are rediscovering Native American cuisine and opening a restaurant using native plants  that their ancestors used. The episode is both inspiring and sobering and it gave me a lot more to think about when I go in the backyard and use my Edible Plants book.
One of the things that stuck out to me in this podcast episode was how the Native Americans used to make cedar tea from tree bark. Thought it would be a cool test for a tincture. (1 part Everclear, 1 part water, handful young cedar branches) It's a lot like the Douglas fir liqueur I made a while ago but will report back on cocktail combinations. :)
