I make tea,oil. Just use water or oil, oil meaning cooking oil of your choice as the base. Then boil low. I try to maintain 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Chop your product up and boil for about an hour for water and four hours for oil. Do not burn the oil!!! It will taste like you know what. Lol. Then strain leafs, stems, etc. For tea I add honey. But at this point your oil will be ready for use for any cooking receipts.
