Rene Caisse and Mary McPherson used to make up two gallons of Essiac decoction at a time in a big old enamel kettle. But in today's world, unless you are an Essiac Angel and making it up for others in quantity, all you may need is a quart or two at a time. It is easier to make up smaller amounts because you don't need a big canning kettle and all the gear that goes along with it. Our new kettle has a lid with a built-in strainer, for easy decanting - you can also use a funnel and kitchen strainer to strain even smaller pieces, but the lid on the kettle and a little careful pouring will work just fine on its own.
We are so pleased to offer this kit, after over a year of working out just the right size kettle to work with our new 10g size herb packets.
The beautiful Quattro Staggioni bottles are from Italy and are one litre, slightly more than a quart. They are heavy like the old milk bottles, so very durable.
The kettle is 1.9 litres - 2 quarts, big enough to make one quart, (which ironically requires a kettle bigger than one quart in size to make!). It is narrow and deep, so less chance of scorching liquids. The measurements are even written inside the pot, so you know where to fill it to.
We're really tickled to offer this kit. It took a while to get it just perfect, now it is!
