The recipe I found (on www.survivalistboards.com) calls for
3 cups white wine -- the sweeter the better because willow can be quite bitter
3 T willow inner bark, dried and crushed
Put the bark into the wine and macerate-shaking daily-for 1 month. Drink 2 tablespoons 3 times a day with food for headaches, migraines, stomachache or rheumatism attacks. or to take the ache out of a broken leg.
If you choose to try this, consult with your doctor first and don't use this instead of regular medicine. But yes, I'm going to try it. Like after a month.
Oh yeah, I get the really cheap Moscato. I don't spend big $ on this. It's against my grain.
I'm just trying this, and I don't necessarily know what I'm doing. I just like to try stuff.
