For this BB, you will create an infusion of tulsi leaves. Infusion is a method of extracting desired compounds from plant material by steeping the material in hot or cold water, depending on the plant and its attributes.
To show you’ve completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
- a picture of your tulsi leaves being harvested
- a picture of the infusion being made
- a picture of the finished infusion
I love this herb and grew lots this year. I use it in a Vietnamese chicken salad which is a family favourite. (My Vietnamese Kitchen by Uyen Luu
I picked 5 small sprigs. I added a mug of water to a pan which i heated until small bubbles appeared. I added the herbs and let steep for about 20 minutes. I drank the infusion when it was just warm - very refreshing.
