Can I make a tincture in the same way just using fresh comfrey leaves?
100 grams comfrey leaves with 700 grams vodka? Or can I fill a jar with comfrey leaves and then pour vodka until I cover it?
Stephanie R says
I have four pint size jars I filled with fresh comfrey leaves and covered them with 80% proof vodka, it’s been six weeks and for the life of me I cannot find the recipe I used. I know you can, and I remember it said to store the comfrey tincture in dark glass bottles in a cool space. But I am curious to see if anyone comments, I want to be sure I am doing this correctly.
