Herbs, meet our liquid gold.

Herbs, meet our liquid gold.

This semester the medicinal plant team has begun experimenting with infusing different local products — herbs, cayenne pepper, as well as red and black currents — into maple syrup. The medicinal plant team put together their innovative brains to create some interesting and delicious infused syrups, and the class taste tested the final products. The overall consensus was in favor of the lemon balm/lemon verbena blend, rosemary/sage blen, and cayenne pepper infused syrups. The medicinal plant folks are working through some legality “hiccups” at the moment, to enable the selling of these delicious infusions. The plant ladies are currently focusing on writing a grant that will include purchasing a legal license to sell different herbal South Hill Forest Products, so stay tuned for some local, herbal goodness.
