I know things have been quiet around here, but I haven’t been able to do much writing the last few weeks. During day 4 of my Wisconsin to Arkansas road trip I was stung by a wasp. To say I’m really allergic to them is putting it mildly, I carry an Epi-pen because more often than not getting stung by one causes an anaphylactic reaction and I end up in the hospital. Thankfully I have quick thinking parents, who once they realized that I wasn’t cussing up a storm for the heck of it, decided to load me up on benedryl and coat me in baking soda. So rather than enjoy the warm weather I came all the way to Arkansas for I spent a good portion of my vacation in my parent’s cabin finding ways to keep my mind off the fact that my arm looked like I had gone 3 rounds and lost. I was swollen, itchy, cranky and nothing seemed to make things better; in fact, many of the supposed bee sting relief methods managed to make things worse, go figure!
After a few hours of my bitching and moaning whining and complaining my parents and I set off in search of some alcohol, only to remember that we were in a dry county. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept, it means that they don't serve alcohol. Fortunately the county we're in has recently moved from being completely dry, to only dry on Sunday. They've also included exemptions for a few select restaurants, so in an effort to improve my disposition my parents drove me into town for some pretty tasty margaritas from the local Mexican restaurant. At the time I couldn't have been happier, but eventually the alcohol wore off and I was right back where I started. Miserable.
My vacation wasn’t a total wash, despite the rough start I had a great time with my family. My son is finally brave enough to climb off the boat and swim in the lake, which is quite a feat for an almost three year old. He was also quite happy to stay inside for a few days once his grandma raided the $5 movie bin at Walmart and bought some new DVDs to watch. During one of the many trips out to pick up supplies I stumbled across something I hadn’t seen in years and certainly never in a bottle. I came across a bottle of Pappy’s Sassafras Tea Concentrate which peaked my interest enough that I picked some up. I’ve never been a fan of tea concentrates, they never taste as good as the real thing, but it isn’t every day that I see sassafras tea in a bottle. In fact, this was a first; besides I was in dire need of something to take my mind off my arm. I felt some experimentation coming on!
Sassafras is an ingredient that I'm no stranger to, it's a versatile plant that has many uses in the culinary world. The leaves can be used for thickening gumbo and the roots can be brewed as tea or used as the base for root beer. It has always been one of the ingredients that I've turned to when I'm suffering from a bout of Bronchitis; it's a great natural remedy for respiratory problems and the hot tea can be very soothing to a sore throat. Unfortunately it doesn't grown in Southern Wisconsin where I'm currently living, but it can be found in abundance in the Eastern portion of the US.
As many times as I've made sassafras tea from scratch I've never thought to ice it down, but the bottle of Pappy's Sassafras Tea Concentrate comes with directions for making iced tea. After following the directions for making the tea "gourmet style" I felt that the tea came out weak tasting; the ice really watered down the flavor. Instead I preferred to follow the "serve it cold" directions by mixing 1 1/2 ounces of tea concentrate with a cup of cold water. Both methods produced a tea that reminded me of root beer minus the sugar and fizz from the carbonated water, which was exactly what I had expected since sassafras is one of the main ingredients used to make root beer. The tea left me wanting to add a few heaping teaspoons of sugar to my cup, which I would have done if I had had any sugar on hand. The flavor was much as I remembered, although when I make the tea from scratch it seems to turn out much more flavorful. My experience with Pappy's Sassafras Tea Concentrate left me wondering if I could use it to make a quick, not quite from scratch, root beer without the fuss of having to boil down all of my ingredients. Check back soon to see how my experiment making root beer using a bottle of Pappy's Sassafras Tea Concentrate turned out.
My Rating: 64/100
Would I order this again? Probably Not. While this tasted ok I try to avoid anything with caramel coloring in it. I'll stick to the real deal in the future.
