Infusión de Manzana Roja Fresca
Apple (Pyrus malus) is the most popular and widely cultivated temperate-zone fruit tree. It belongs in the Rosaceae family and is thought to have originated in Western Asia and Asia Minor, where carbonised apples dating from 6500 B.C. have been found. Apples have been cultivated for at least 3,000 years and thousands of varieties now grow around the world.
The trees produce white or pink flowers and their fruits vary from bright red to yellowish green. The fruits of most varieties are edible. Their textures can be crisp, tender or floury and flavours range from tart to sweet.
We cut fresh red apples and infuse them in boiled water. This is then strained and added to our fresh handmade cosmetics.
Helen added this crisp infusion to our It Started With a Kiss lip balm for its sweet, tasty and tempting properties.
