Herbes fraiches

My Grandma used to make an herbal infusion, to drink after supper, using fresh sage and lemon juice. When sweetened with a little honey, it makes a soothing cup to drink on a cold evening. I like to prepare it too this time of the year, using sage from the garden. I don't think aromatic plants like plastic bags, so I made a small fabric pouch to use when I pick them up from the garden. Fresh lavender still holds the strength of the July sun in its smell... It tells a story of old laces and freshly washed linen...



Mia Nonna preparava un infuso da bere dopo cena, con salvia fresca e limone. Aggiungendo un cucchiaino di miele, diventa una bevanda perfetta per le serate fredde. Mi piace prepararla in questo periodo dell'anno, usando la salvia del giardino. Non credo che alle aromatiche vada a genio la plastica, per cui mia sono fatta una borsino di stoffa da usare quando vado a raccoglierle. La lavanda fresca ha trattenuto la forza del sole estivo nel suo profumo... Racconta di vecchi pizzi e biancheria stesa al sole!
