Fermented Oregano

Tastes great and does wonders for you if you have cough or asthma.  Try it as a drench for your pigs, goats...and add on to drinking water of your chickens when they are at the onset of colds or difficulty breathing.

What do we need?

3kgs oregano leaves, tear it apart
1kg or 1lt honey (my personal choice), coco sugar if you are watching your bloodsugar, or muscovado.  If for farm animals, use molasses.

That is the ratio, so if you are using 600g of oregano, then you will need 200g molasses.

Place it in a container, layering oregano then molasses, oregano again then molasses. To ensure that the leaves are coated well....ending with the molasses.  Or you can have the leaves in the container and add your honey/sugar/molasses and mix.  Problem with this is that you put to waste some honey and molasses that will stick to your mixing.  Better to do layering.

I make sure that all leaves are submerged and check on every 2days to spin the container :)

Ferment for 7days. After 7days, you may transfer it to the refrigerator for a refreshing throat remedy (for human consumption). Some use it as sweeter for their Tarragon tea :).  For animal consumption, you can leave the harvested fermented oregano in a cool dark place.

I take 2Tablespoons when my throat is itchy. I find no need to remove the sludge of oregano leaves as they have been reduced in size and adds a bite to my remedy when swallowed. 

For our pigs, we drench with 10ml, 3x a day.  Don't include the sludge when you drench as the small leaves may clog the syringe.
