Description

Tonic & rejuvenative herbs in garden and kitchen. Bupin, 'repair substance,' is a group of Chinese herbs which can be combined with meat (optional) and vegetables to produce 'medicated cuisine', for tonification and boosting immunity. Consisting mostly of seeds, fruits and tuberous roots, they are tasty and are consumed as part of the meal (a few fibrous ones are used to prepare stock, then discarded). There are classic combinations involving 6-12 or more herbs, and many of these are sold pre-packaged in the larger oriental supermarkets. An exciting new (to us) direction for adventurous chefs. Many of these can be grown locally (an exciting new direction for adventurous growers). Also: congee, the standard Chinese breakfast of soupy rice, to which herbs can be added to address a wide variety of health concerns. I'll share a collection of cookbooks.
