Friday 18th August - Famous Herbalist

Christine Steward is our new Medical Herbalist at work (Rowan is taking a year off to build a house). It turns out that Christine was the "old book" that gave Sarah Raven the recipe for Calendula Cream which was demonstrated on tv this week. Gardner's World had filmed Christine making it at home along with a few other creams, then decided to use Sarah Raven on the actual programme.

Christine advises that you in fact heat the cream for 3 hours rather than 1 and don't use a funnel when straining.
