Steeping herbs into your homemade lemonade is one great way to enjoy the benefits of herbs. Red Clover is an awesome herb of choice for such an occasion.
Red Clover is an herb that can be drank freely, and is full of amazing nutrition! It is a great blood purifier and cancer fighter. Drinking an infusion daily has been said to treat infertility.
Red Clover is high in:
- Vitamin C
We have a pretty good patch of red clover that grows in our garden area. It grows all summer long, and is far too valuable of an herb to let go to waste. Try foraging for this amazing herb, or grow it yourself!
One delicious, refreshing way to consume red clover is by making this red clover, no sugar lemonade! I found this recipe and adapted it from New Life On A Homestead.
Red Clover Lemonade
- 3 cups fresh red clover blooms or 1 1/2 cups dried red clover blossoms
- 4 cups water
- 1 cup lemon juice
- 8 tbsp. raw honey
- Boil the blooms in the water for 5 minutes.
- Add the lemon juice and honey to the hot liquid.
- Stir until the honey is well mixed.
If you don’t have red clover blooming near you, you can purchase dried red clover here.
