 EatTheWeeds: Episode 70: Basswood Tree, Linden, Lime

 

 

Editor's Note from Leigh Glenn: Mostly called basswood in the United States, Tilia spp. is known as linden or lime among herbalists and in Europe. Woodworkers like the wood. The heart-shaped leaf is a clue to its use as a heart-support herb. The leaves and flowers are used for teas and tinctures. I like to make an infusion -- one ounce of dried to one quart-sized jar of boiling water, letting this steep for at least four hours. Here, Green Deane wildcrafts some of the fresh leaf to make a salad.
