Yes, that is a 2 quart mason jar. If I'm using a 1 quart jar, I simply put 1 small hndfaul nettles and 1 of oat tops. Double that for a 2 quart jar. I never measure, but a standard measurement is 1 ounce herb to 1 quart water. I like to use less than this for daily tonic beverages though. Hope this helps and enjoy your nettles! Jen

Back in September I made an extract of nettles (using nettles from my field & a good quality vodka)and left it to steep away. I know the obvious warnings about alcohol in pregnancy... and I consider a nettle infusion to be safe in pregnancy... what are your thoughts on nettle extract during the 3rd trimester, since I've used up all my dried nettles, and my local herb supplier is out of stock as well? I know you can't give specific medical advice - - I'm just looking for some guidelines! Thank you!
