Where Does Chaga Come From 

Chaga grows on birch trees in colder climates and requires proper harvesting to prevent damaging the tree. You may have seen it while out walking. It looks like a large, bumpy node projecting out from the trunk of the birch tree. If you didn’t know it was a mushroom, you might think the tree is sick. Really, that node is a powerful healing mushroom!

Notes

*Making your own pumpkin puree is easy.  First, cook your pumpkin by roasting or boiling.  Then you simply mash and smoosh until your pumpkin is pureed.  Easy!  Of course, some people prefer the convenience of pumpkin puree in a can.  That’s fine as well!
**If you don’t have evaporated milk, you can substitute by making your own.  Add 1 cup of dried milk with water to make 1-1/4 cups of evaporated milk.
