Formatting, etc.

I am going to be playing around with the background and formatting of this blog in the next few days. Please bear with me!

Red Clover Lemonade

Our yard is currently full of red clover. After being away from the Northeast for so long I find the clover comforting in a way. Like an old friend.

Here is a recipe for red clover lemonade you can try! Red clover is a wonderful tonic herb that will nourish you body and soul! It is packed full of nutrients such as calcium, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium and niacin among others!

Red Clover Lemonade

4 cups fresh Red Clover blossoms

1 gallon water

1 c. honey

1 ½ cups lemon juice

1. Gently simmer Clover blossoms in a covered pot for 10 minutes.

2. Add honey, stirring until it dissolves.

3. Cover and let steep and cool for several hours or overnight. (This makes a strong, potent tea, maximizing the calcium and other nutrients in the Clover.)

4. Add lemon juice and chill.
