!!!A WORD OF CAUTION!!!:
I keep seeing people recommending mason jars and boiling water. The second time I made this I was using these two things and made a very stupid mistake: even though I waited a few minutes for the water to cool down I didn't wait nearly long enough and when I put the lid on the jar it exploded about three seconds later- spraying glass, hot water, and tea everywhere. I only suffered minor burns on my hands but when I told this story to a coworker she told me about a neighbor that lost an eye in this same way. So be careful!!! I'm now using slightly cooler water and I'm covering the jar with cheesecloth rather than the standard lid.
Here's a recipe if you would like to try to make your own nourishing herbal infusion with this nettle leaf. Start by measuring out 32 ounces of water and bringing it to a full boil. while it's heating, measure out 1 ounce (by weight) of organic nettle leaves (dried cut and sifted) and place it inside a quart-sized mason jar (i used an old glass spaghetti sauce jar that is 36 ounces and it works fine). Once the water has come to a full boil, place a metal butter knife into mason jar (to prevent cracking) and pour the water while it is still boiling carefully into the mason jar. stir in the nettle to make sure it all has been absorbed the water (some will raise to top), seal it tightly right away (be quick, because it's hot) and let it seep for a minimum of 4 hours. I let mine seep for 8 hours +. Next, you will need another empty quart sized mason jar or similar-sized glass jar (to strain the nettle out of your infusion and into a new jar), use a mesh strainer to strain out the nettle leaf into the other jar. You may want to lightly squeeze out the remaining moisture from nettle leaf inside the strainer. Once you are done straining, you can drink it right away, but make sure to keep it refrigerated as soon as you strain it. Also, the used nettle leaf is a great addition to your garden soil or potted plants, so don't throw it in the trash! Make sure to drink it within 36 hours, it is best to drink it throughout the day (within 8 hours), refridgerated. I typically make my herbal infusions at night, before bed and drink first thing in the morning and throughout the day. I prefer the taste of nettle herbal infusions cold. it's my favorite herbal infusion so far. Thank you, Frontier - I will be ordering from you again!!! ;o)
