Herbal Teas by Richard Craze

1          apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced

1/4      cup medium oatmeal

1           oz. dried mullein

3-1/2   cups boiling water

1           measure (1-1/2 Tbsp.) Whisky

concentrated apple juice or honey to sweeten

**Put the dry ingredients in a large container and pour over the water.  Let stand until cool enough to drink.  Strain and pour into cups, adjust strength by adding more hot water.  Add the whisky and sweeten to taste.  It is also good cold, so alternatively, refrigerate before serving.      Serves 6
