  • Regular price $20.00

Bitter roots and herbs have a rich history, especially in traditional European medicine. They have consistently played a role in the cuisines and medical systems of indigenous peoples, and for good reason: their applications include digestive troubles, liver disease, and hypersensitivity. We have been systematically removing the bitter flavor from the Western diet for the last two hundred years, and our love affair with sweetness is starting to take its toll. Learn how simple and relevant bitters can be to prepare and use, as part of your medicine chest and your bar, too!
