1. Chickweed infusion - Stuff a mason glass with chickweed, cover with boiling water, and drink the next day.
2. Vinegar - again, stuff a glass, cover with apple cider vinegar, and let sit at least 6 weeks. Strain & enjoy!
3. Tincture - STUFF a GLASS!! Cover with vodka, wait 6 weeks. Strain.
4. EAT IT! yes, just eat it. You can chop it into salads, use it with sandwiches...your imagination can go wild.
Here is the thing, Chickweed has a slight "green" taste. Not everyone's thing.
I just made this delicious salad dressing with it, and poured it over Mache' salad with avocados. YUM!
1 giant handful of chickweed
1 handful of sorrel (if you don't have sorrel, with has a citrusy flavor, use lemon juice)
Olive Oil & vinegar (I use apple cider)
Salt n' Peppa
1 tblsp honey
Mix it all up in the mixer, until all the greens are pureed.
