Sekanjabin: A Persian oxymel of mint and vinegar
Boil 1 cup of water with 4 tsp of white sugar, till the sugar dissolves. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar (we like to use raspberry vinegar). Simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and add some sprigs of fresh mint, which adds its flavour to the oxymel as it cools. Serve diluted in ice-cold water, as you would a cordial. Alternatively, freeze in the form of ice cubes and store for future use.
Use Sekanjabin for:
• hot conditions
• lack of appetite
• weak digestion
