Pimms the art of

Pimms the art of

Originally shared by Jon “the chef” Hole

Ego Barago Gaudia semper ago
Quote Pliny
( I Borage bring always Courage)

He called it Euphrosinum
Because it maketh a man/woman merry and joyfull

Borrage was called by the old herbalists Bugloss
Originally from Aleppo,Syria

When steeped in water it imparts a coolness to it.
Compound with lemon and sugar in Wine
Making a refreshing and restorative summer drink.

Now to the good bit
Borrage contains potassium and calcium combined with mineral acids.

The fresh juice affords 30%,the dried 3% of nitrate of potash
Owing to this when burnt it will emit sparks with a slight explosive sound !
To go with azlin Pimms
