Step:

  1. This recipe uses corn silk from 8 cobs of young corn. Throw out the blackened part and use only the silky part.

  2. Place the corn silk in a sieve and leave it for 2 to 3 days to dry. It's better to sun dry it, but it doesn't matter too much.

  3. Cut it into 3 cm lengths with a pair of scissors. Roast it slowly in a skillet over low heat. It may take a long time, but be patient!

  6. Put it in a tea strainer and pour some hot water throug. It's just like making a cup of English tea. 2 teaspoons of the corn silk per coffee mug should be a good amount.

  7. The amount of the corn silk shown in the profile photo made 10 teaspoons, which makes about 5 coffee mugs of tea.

  8. I heard that the corn silk is a diuretic. So it helps if you get swelling in your feet.
