Storing Decoctions

We have covered this week how to make decoctions, how to use decoctions, and now I would like to cover Storing Decoctions. 

You may have noticed, like I did when making the mushroom decoction that I had to keep adding in additional water to accomodate the ever expanding mushrooms. So what happened is that I ended up with some extra liquid that I would like to use in the future.

When making decoctions please remember that you will want to use your decoctions within a day or two if kept refrigerated. You will want to use your decoctions at their freshest. Any leftover decoctions that you want to save for a later day can be placed into a zipper bag, or other container, and kept in the freezer.  Another idea would be to pour your decoctions into ice cube trays, freeze, remove frozen cubes and place into a bag. This would make it easier to measure the exact proportions for future uses. Be sure to label your bags with the date and contents of each bag.

Happy Decoction Making!
