Jewelweed broth
Not only is this a tasty cold soup for summertime, it is a superior remedy for poison ivy rash.
Sipping 2-4 cups of jewelweed broth, hot or cold, will quell both skin and joint inflammation.

Harvest jewelweed (Impatiens pallida or canadensis) by pulling every 4th or 5th plant up by the roots. We are using the entire plant. The redder the root, the more effective this remedy.
At home, rinse your jewelweed and place it, roots and all, in a pan, pressing it down very well.

Add just enough cold water to barely cover the jewelweed and bring to a boil.
Simmer, covered, until the water is orange.
Cool, then refrigerate or pour into ice cube trays and freeze.
