Chamomile


Sometimes the fresh leaves are used, but it is the very center of the flower that is most prized. The petals of this tiny daisy are removed after the flower is dried.

Anthemis nobilis, a creeping perennial, grows to 6 inches in dry light soil.

RECIPE:

Try a small quantity in stews for a delightful new flavor.

Tea

Per cup:
6 chamomile flowers
1/2 - 1 Tablespoon fresh chamomile
or
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon dried chamomile

Never use a metal pot. Steep for 3 - 5 minutes in water brought to a rolling boil.
