May Wine

May Wine

Making May Wine is so simple it is really a non-recipe. The key to achieving the aroma is to trim a small handful of Sweet Woodruff tips and let the herb clippings sit out in the sun - you will notice the dramatic change in smell as it wilts. Sweet Woodruff contains a chemical called coumarin* which has a sweet fragrance that is freed by enzymatic action during the drying process.

Snake plant (sansevieria) at Michler's in Lexington KY

Snake Plant (Sansevieria)

How did such a benign plant accumulate so many unfriendly-sounding names?  Known as snake plant, mother-in-law's tongue, and viper's bowstring hemp (among other things), sansevieria is easy to care for and very hardy.
