I’ve searched the forum, but didn’t see this exact topic addressed... how do I process pine pitch for making salves or other “medicinal” type products? Here in Michigan there are plenty of pine trees and, with them, lots of pitch. Yesterday I harvested quite a few chunks that were formed around some... pine beetle larvae??? Now how do I strain out all the sticks, leaves, etc? Last time I think I added water, brought it to a boil and let the solids settle to the bottom, but there has to be a better way! Thanks in advance!
