[ Recipe: Gentle Gentian Bitters ] ~ from HerbCO
gentle gentian bitters

This simple formula is easy to make and easy on little tummies. Be sure to use vinegar instead of alcohol to make it child-friendly.

½ ounce gentian root
½ ounce licorice root
½ ounce cinnamon chips
4 cardamom pods, lightly crushed
1 teaspoon dried orange peel
4 cups alcohol or apple cider vinegar

Place all herbal material in a large glass canning jar. Cover with the alcohol or vinegar. Cap the jar and place in a cool dark place for 6-8 weeks. Strain and decant the finished tincture into dropper bottles. Note: If using vinegar, add a tablespoon of honey, more to taste, just before bottling
