Cornsilk - Yu Mi Xu, cooling summer drink

I found an article in the Meet the Herbs section of Everydayhealthtcm blog about making a summer drink from corn silk. It looked delicious, but I decided to try it before posting about it. I did as they suggested, putting the light golden raw cornsilk into a jug overnight. It turned pale yellow color.

It was delicious, like drinking a fresh ear of corn.

The stigmas should be collected just before pollination occurs, the timing depends upon climate. It is best used fresh as some of the activity is lost with time.
