Sekanjabin

Post by Aonghus » Sat Apr 28, 2007 1:57 pm

This is a non-alcoholic period drink syrup recipe which will store indefinitely without refrigeration.

Sekanjabin

"Sekanjabin" is more commonly refered to as Persian mint water.
Recipe: Boil together equal amounts of vinegar (any type including white, red, or cider), and sugar until it thickens to the consistency of warm maple syrup. Meanwhile, take a bunch of fresh mint (you can buy mint extract in the supermarket if you can't find the real thing), rinse it well in water, and tie it in cheesecloth (you can omit the cheesecloth if you don't mind leaves floating in your drinks). Turn off the heat under the syrup and drop in the bunch of mint. When it's all cooled, take out the mint, squeezing it well, and store the resulting syrup. To use, dilute with water to taste (from about five to one, up to ten to one).
