      I think these hops will be making their way into some of #1 Son’s home-made beer. They are spread out on a bedroom floor at the moment – drying. We don’t have all that many yet. But I understand hops can be an ingredient in tea. Last year we bought some “hop pepper” from a local craft brewer/hop grower. It’s a mix of black pepper and ground, dried hops….. And is very nice.

        Oh now that is interesting. You have a personal connection to some good craft beer and the hop pepper sounds really cool. ๐Ÿ™‚ We have a local brewery, Red Hook, that grows hops all around their outside seating area as a display. I love learning something new. Thanks for sharing.

    Such a delicate and dainty plant! Gorgeous moss green color…They’re used to make beer?

      I agree, Lia. They are very pretty. And they have a nice fresh, almost citrusy scent. I have seen them in “olde” English pubs, decorating the ceiling beams. This batch will go into some homemade beer as a flavouring. Cheers!! ๐Ÿ™‚
