Senna Pod Syrup


Senna Pod Syrup

This is a very favorite drink of mine when spring is about, and even the most healthy of us need a clearing medicine. I take a dozen senna pods and put them into a clean saucepan with a clove, a peppercorn, a bit of whole ginger, a piece of mace, a quarter of a nutmeg and a quart of boiling water. Simmer slowly till reduced to a pint ; strain, add honey to taste, then bottle. It is particularly good when Constipation is accompanied by flatulence.
