In this session you will be making your very own tinctures:
Tinctures are made from 100 percent full fruiting bodies. The mushrooms are cultivated from our mushroom logs. Grogans Riverfront prides itself by allowing our fungi to be free of any kinds of pesticides or unnatural ingredients.
Some of the compounds of medicinal mushrooms must be extracted using water, and others need to be extracted using alcohol. We cook the mushrooms in water at a low temperature, strain them, and then soak them in Everclear Grain Alcohol for 4-6 weeks to extract all the beneficial alcohol-soluble compounds. Water and alcohol extractions were used to make these tinctures, making them double extraction tinctures that contain both the water-soluble and the alcohol-soluble properties of turkey tail mushrooms.
We have partnered with Stesha Warren who is a Stoneville resident and co-owner of Eliana’s Garden. She has been foraging for over 25 years and loves sharing this knowledge with others, as do we.

We provide all materials, due to that all participants must pay in advance.
Dosing and usage recommendation:
Recommend serving: between 1m (about 30 drops), 1-2 times daily, or as needed.
Tinctures are best mixed with a liquid to dilute the concentrated flavor – add to tea, coffee, cocoa and other hot beverages (the heat will cause the alcohol to evaporate leaving the beneficial compounds in the cup for you to drink), add to smoothies, oatmeal, soups, salad dressing and anything else you would like.
Our tincture is on average 30% alcohol by volume.
