        Beth100posted 7 years agoin reply to this

        well, it's worth a try...not a technique per se but you do mash/cut the herbs and tie in cheesecloth and place in the water to steep for flavor....

          smile i struck my funny bone, but no it was actually a good guess because the bouquet is what is boiled or steeped.

          Decoct isn't a work most men would forget.

          Good job Mr. Popo!

          mrpopoposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          I remember it vaguely from an old PowerPoint presentation on brewing a few years ago. Came across it while researching the subject. But, I hadn't heard of it prior to that!

          Then again, I'm not much of a cook, unless you count microwavable items...tongue

        mrpopoposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Cool! Uh, what does that mean, exactly? Do I have to make any Hubs?

        1. Jason Menayan profile image59
          Jason Menayanposted 7 years agoin reply to this

          You certainly can, but you now have 3 entries automatically for the Daily Drawing tomorrow. You can publish up to 5 Hubs on today's topic to increase your chances (each eligible Hub will give you another entry).

    steeping

  32. relache profile image90
    relacheposted 7 years ago

    Steeping is when herbs/items are put in water that has been boiled but then taken off the heat.

    Decoction is done while actively boiling.  I have done enough herb work I should have known that.

    1. Jason Menayan profile image59
      Jason Menayanposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      Excellent explanation.

    2. mrpopo profile image78
      mrpopoposted 7 years agoin reply to this

      I was actually gonna guess steeping first too.

    Is the term you are looking for the word "broil" ? I am not even sure its a word, my Grandmother says it is. Anyway, that's my one chance used up! Cheers!
