Plantain to the rescue. Maybe?
A parade was going through my small town this morning, which meant that several hundred people were going to walk past my neglected front yard and look at my weeds. So I went on a wild weeding spree, including the very evil quackgrass, and was absolutely glove-less. Now I am trying to chop shallots and my hands are telling me about it. I have numerous small slits, including places I couldn't put a band-aid even if I wanted to .(I strongly dislike band-aids on my hands. They get wet and nasty in no time.) I'm wondering if I could make a plantain smoothie( fomentation?), and pour it into some plastic gloves. I noticed something dark in one of the cuts, so I was hoping the plantain would draw it out. Would that work(when I'm done cooking)? Do y'all have a better idea? A better herb to use?
