Witch Hazel

I had always wondered what bit of the Witch Hazel the well known tonic is made from.  So when I saw Witch Hazel in flower,  its tiny yellow and red spikes brightening up the weekend, it reminded me to investigate.  Just in case it was the blossom that was used (like saffron from crocus) I thought now would be the best time to check, and it would seem that now is the time.

I was going to write a load of stuff – but it would seem that Handmaiden’s Kitchen has already written almost everthing there is to say about it, so check out her blog…. http://handmaidenkitchen.blogspot.co.uk/2010/01/make-your-own-witch-hazel-extract.html
