Want to make your own herbal bitters?  Here's a recipe we've used at my house over the years.  It came to me from my daughter-in-law, who believes she got it from herbalist, Susan Weed.

Combine 1 oz. each of these ground herbs and put into a large glass jar with a lid:  cardamon pods, orange peel, gentian root, oregon grape root. Pour this liquid over the herbs in the jar: 10 ounces of Everclear and 10 ounces of spring water, or 20 ounces of 100 proof vodka.  Some people I know have also used brandy.  Steep for at least 2 weeks, shaking well each day. Then strain & put in 2 or 4-oz dropper bottles and store in a cool dry place out of sunlight.  Makes a great gift for friends and family.
