Herbalist to discuss medicinal vinegars
Herbalist Kristin Minto will host a workshop on vinegar remedies at Watson Farm on Sunday, Sept. 8, at 10 a.m. Minto will teach participants how to make “fire cider” and “five thieves,” both powerful herbal vinegars to help stay healthy during the winter. Herbal medicinal vinegars have been around since ancient times, and they are considered to be an effective method for preserving and dispensing healing and culinary herbs. The workshop lasts 2 1/2 hours. Cost is $10 for Historic New England members, $20 for nonmembers. The event is part of the Rhode Island Land Trust Days. Call Don Minto at 423-0005 to learn more.
