Beginning a New Kyphi

Except for my private reserve, I am now out of kyphi, both kinds, the Egyptian and the Golden, so I am embarking on another kyphi making session, again, taking my sweet a** time getting there because that's what makes a good kyphi -- time and reflection and reverence for the materials.

So we begin with spearmint, organically grown, harvested from the four quarters garden at Seasons on a dark and moonless night.

Freshly cut spearmint, ready for drying.



Dried spearmint in the mortar ready for pestling.



Finely powdered spearmint.
