Sassafras Tables, Tea & Dogs

Sassafras is such a pleasure to work.

It shares the most amazing fragrance, which usually brings back wonderful childhood memories.  Each winter, Dad would take us (two boys) through the woods looking for a sassafras tree.  We would dig a few pieces of the root.

Trying not to damage the tree we would carefully cover the roots back over.

Next we would take the roots into the kitchen for a wash, and place the roots in a pot of water for a short boil.  The house would smell sweet and wonderful throughout the remainder of the day.  

Sassafras tea, sweetened with a bit of honey is hard to beat on a cold winter day.  rw
