I was looking at your herbal infusion videos and it seems that you suggest that we always fill the jar completely when making an herbal infusion . Is this essential ?
I have 2 quart jars but I only make 1 quart of nettle infusion as I don’t want it to go bad. (I consume 1 cup a day). So my jar is only half full.
Thank you so much
You need to make sure that you are putting in the proper ratio of herb to water – it is not simply a matter of filling the jar full. Susun always says to weigh out the herb to ensure you are getting enough to make a proper infusion.
So for each ounce by weight of herb, you will need one quart of boiling water.
Since Susun is using a one quart jar, yes, it will often look as if the jar is filled with plant material…
