Grown on the farm, epazote is an heirloom herb from mexico, used in many traditional dishes, as well as an herbal tea. We especially use it when we are cooking our beans in chili as it gives them a unique flavour that we thought we could only find in Mexico. Epazote is used to reduce the gases that increase flatulence. We obtained the seeds from Johanne Paquet Siwi, Huron Wendat.
