Pinsteps. Discovering Herbal Teas and Unique Plants in Ofer Forest
Places to visit in Israel. Languages: he, en, ru

Herbal tea, known for its ability to ward off chills and even prevent intoxication when consumed before alcohol, is just one of the forest's natural treasures.

In the realm of acorns, the small Tabor oak stands out with its cup of curly spines, while its larger counterpart contains high tannin concentrations, crucial in leather processing and wine aging in oak barrels. Making acorn flour involves a meticulous process of cracking, peeling, and grating to isolate the white inner part.

Exploring further, we find a plant with a shitake-like aroma, offering a unique flavor to mushroom dishes. Janbott's fruits, another forest find, are harvested in July-August.

Lastly, the Pickle flower, native to South America, is recognizable by its three heart-shaped parts connected at the apex, resembling clover. Each of these elements contributes to the rich botanical diversity of Ofer Forest, offering a blend of culinary and practical uses.
