Arbutus time

Tempo di corbezzoli

Arbutus time….
In addition to a good good jam, syrup and a delicate vinegar (see below) you can make the infusion with the leaves.

The infusion

It is useful for fighting cystitis, inflammation of the urinary tract, kidneys, diarrhea, flu symptoms and for giving tone to the skin.
The only limitation for those suffering from gastritis.
It is prepared by putting 5 grams of leaves in 250 ml of boiling water and leaving it for 15 – 20 minutes to infuse and then filtered with a sieve.
Sweeten to taste with honey (with strawberry tree!)

Vinegar

You can prepare an excellent strawberry vinegar by pouring a handful of leaves and fresh fruits in a liter of vinegar (preferably apple vinegar).
They are left to macerate for about three weeks in the dark, then filtered through a sieve over which gauze is placed.

For the skin

Arbutus vinegar is excellent on salads, but also as a skin tonic, to eliminate dark spots and to restore brightness. Here’s how to proceed: With a cotton swab soaked in strawberry tree vinegar, tap your face, insisting above all on the critical points (dark spots due to acne, sunburn, etc.). Wait ten minutes then rinse with plenty of warm water.
Repeated for 4-5 days it helps to eliminate dead cells, visibly lightening, smoothing and toning the skin.
