Welcome back to a new season of MXED GREENS' Medicine Making 101 Workshop Series - Never Too Many Jars!  

Each month from March-Sept (no class in July), you'll get to dive into a different herbal medicine preparation with us. All materials are provided, and you'll get to take home the medicine you make each time. Classes are held the first Thursday of each month from 6-7:30pm.

Class #5: Oxymels and Honeys

Date: Thursday August 1st

Time: 6-7:30pm

Cost: $10-$30 sliding scale (please review our sliding scale page for where to pay)  For NTMJ classes this year, we are continuing to try to offer an accessible price point. $10 is the average base materials cost.In the absence of a sliding scale, we would charge $20 to cover materials costs and compensate ourselves for the labor of facilitating. When you pay more than $20, you are helping to subsidize the difference of lower-cost tickets, and allow us to continue offering these classes to community!

What you'll learn:

> How to extract fresh and dried plants in honey and apple cider vinegar (ACV)

> Understand the process from harvest to final straining/pressing of making oxymels (aka shrubs), herbal honeys, and ACV extractions like fire cider

> How to calculate the appropriate ratios of the herbs and the extract menstruum

> Easy recipes for using your oxymels and honeys in cooking and baking “food as medicine” preparations, and in herbal cocktails or mocktails

> Tips for avoiding mold/spoilage, as well as troubleshooting

> for this class, please bring 1-3 of your own small jars with well-fitting lids if you have them!
