I went back to the peach tree and made tincture. Here’s the harvest. See if you can spot the bee.

I chopped all that roughly, twigs included (but not the bee). Then I put it in a jar:

I’ve packed it in more than normal (and it’s popping out) because the petals are so light that when the alcohol goes in the bulk reduces down alot. Normally you fill to below the top with plant and then to the top with vodka.

Here’s the tincture after brewing for a couple of days. The colour is extracted out of the petals within the first few hours, and then the tincture gradually goes a deeper colour over days. The tincture starts to smell of almond in the first few hours too, yum.

There are some considerations about dosage with peach tincture, so please research this medicine if you want to try it out.
