    I have just made some Hawthorne berry tincture. I usually just let the dried herbs of all my tinctures expand and the next day I blend them into herbal applesauce and return them to the jars and top them off with more vodka if needed. Today I came across this information:

    "The first thing you need to know about the Hawthorn berries is you should not eat the seeds. They contain cyanide bonded with sugar, called amygdalin. In your gut — actually small intestine — that changes to hydrogen cyanide and can be deadly. You can cook the berries then discard the seeds, but don’t eat the seeds. I recently saw a recipe on the internet that called for using hawthorne berries whole. Clearly that cook never made that pie, or if she did, only once. Don’t eat Hawthorne seeds. If you eat the raw berries spit the seeds out. If an adult mistakenly eats one or two seeds they aren’t deadly but they could be to a child. The seeds are best avoided." from http://www.eattheweeds.com/the-crataegus-clan-food-poison-2/


    Further research proved inconclusive. So this has left me confused about my tincture since the seeds are blended right in with the fruit! The seed is quite a large part of the volume since they are quite big inside of the berries. This is not the first batch of Hawthorne berry that I have made this way.......

    What do you think? Did I mess up?
