This book is primarily intended "for those who are going to create an old-fashioned herb garden, and who want to know how to use these herbs as our great-grandmothers did"; but even if you buy your herbs at the store, this practical handbook will show you how to make hundreds of teas, syrups, conserves, pies, candied flowers and leaves, wines, sweet waters and perfumes from well-known wild and garden herbs that are readily available. Most of the recipes are taken from Old English herbals, and the author, one of the two or three most outstanding herbalists of this century, adds many more of her own.
