Y'all may recall that I did an experimental batch of "country wine" using pine needles, eastern red cedar berries and some dried medicinal mushrooms... along with sugar and yeast, of course. I let it ferment for 3 months or so. i just tried it and it is actually pretty good! It is strongly medicinal - anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-viral and anti-oxidant. Apparently, pine can irritate the kidneys if consumed in large amounts. So, I'll probably just drink a glass a day... maybe mix it with black tea. I think I've discovered something good!
