To make Tincture:
Use sharp scissors to cut leaves fresh off the the forsythia, straight into the jar. Fill to top with leaves. Then I use scissors to chop them a bit right in the jar. That makes them settle a bit, with room for more leaves. Add more, chop again. Repeat till jar is 3/4 full. Fill to top w vodka, set aside for 3 months. Store long term with leaves, 💚 strain a small amount at a time & transfer to a dropper bottle for use. tinctures of 100% vodka, no sugar or water added, will last 2-10 years.
