I am a Moringa Oleifera buff, yes, I cook it, add it to salads, use it as green manure and feed my wriggling pets in my worm-bin with it.
After my recent visit to ECHO Farm (where it is greatly promoted; do watch the video, it’s very informative), I’ve been inspired to try something new.
So, out to the backyard I went, for some moringa-leaf harvest. As this is going to be my 1st attempt, I resisted cutting off too much.
Rinsed them and placed them in colanders to be sun dried. It’s summer, so what better time to do this?
They dried, they shrank …
After 2 days of strong sun-drying, I crunched them to make sure that they were fully dried, yes they broke up like brittle crackers ~ they are ready. So I decided to put them in homemade teabags, without staples. I stitched/fastened the bags with clean cotton yarn.
Used teabags will go to the worms or simply composted. Soon I intend to have mixed concoctions ~ with mint or ginger or cranberry hibiscus or rosemary …
