Elixir Of Life

The white hare of the moon making the elixir of life at the foot of the cassia tree [1]

See also tree of life. Made with a long stick and wooden bucket similar to churning butter but to macerate the fruits and herbs as water and/or sap is added little by little. Ingredients should be cleaned (to prevent spoilage) and chopped before adding to bucket. Eventually when it reaches final dilution it should be strained and carbonated (or brewed similarly to root beer). Can be filtered through diatomaceous earth to make clear if desired.

Modern production would probably employ a blender or especially a juicer.


  1. wash then chop all ingredients
  2. use blender like the blendtec or ninja to finely puree everything
  3. use centrifugal juicer to strain pulp
  4. use centrifuge to clarify
  5. use 22 um filter under vacuum to sterilize
  6. bottle in glass and carbonate to 33psi 40c while shaking
  7. sous vide to internal temp of 60c for 15 minutes for long term storage


Higher heat for shorter time is less hard on peroxidase also active peroxidase degrades nutrients during storage [2] so ideally we want to reversibly inactivate peroxidase during storage.

Stabilizing horseradish peroxidase with guar gum and galactose [3].

Co2 increases peroxidase activity [4].

Peroxidase can degrade lignin and cellulose [5].

Coronavirus inactivated at 60c for 5 mins [6].

70c reccomended for legionella [7].

90% of legionella killed in 2 mins at 60c, calculate other times [8] ~15 minutes enough to kill to 7 standard deviations [9] [10].

60c to 56c would take about 6x longer to sterilize [11].
