Before you throw out this year's Christmas Tree, are you sure you don't wan to eat it? A woman in the UK has written an entire book called "How To Eat Your Christmas Tree." She claims there are many uses in the kitchen for your old tree! She suggests Pine Needle Tea, which is good for sore muscles.
How about using the pine needles to enhance flavor like Rosemary and Bay Leaves? Or even cooking the branches and using the ash as a spice?!
How about adding the pine needles to boiling water and sugar and making Christmas Tree syrup?
The author of the book runs a supper club with her pine tree creations on the menu!
