How did you get started with infusions?

I got started with infusions because I wanted to find new ways to use things from my garden.

What was your first experience with a LĒVO machine like?
I won’t lie, I was a little nervous at first, but after reading the instructions and looking at videos of other people using LĒVO machines, I felt confident, and after my first infusion, I was amazed at how easy it was and I couldn’t wait to try other infusions.

How has LĒVO changed your approach to cooking or wellness?
It’s made me a little more creative in the kitchen! I’ve been able to infuse ingredients into cooking oils, honey and butter which can help elevate simple dishes. I’ve also been able to create my own wellness products such as CBD infused coconut oil that I used to buy for aches and pains, but it can be expensive to purchase. Being able to make it myself at home, with my own homegrown CBD has been a game changer.

About Alison's Seasonal Chocolate Recipe

What inspired you to create this particular recipe?
I don’t know too many people who dislike chocolate; it usually goes over well. I also really love the combination of mint and chocolate and since I have a surplus of mint, this will be a perfect use of it!

How does this recipe tie into the current season?
While in some areas mint can grow year round, sometimes it’s best to do a major harvest to refresh the plant a little, especially around this time as the summer garden is coming to an end. With the holidays coming up, if you’ve dried the mint already, you can save it for when you want to make the chocolates closer to gifting time.

What are the key infused ingredients, and why did you choose them?
The key infused ingredient is coconut oil with the mint. Mint with chocolate is generally a well received combination and the coconut oil blends well with the chocolate and will solidify with it nicely and mint is popular around the holidays!


Home Infusion Tips and Tricks

Do you have any tips for first-timers using LĒVO?
Familiarize yourself with the handbook and use the time and temperature calculator on the LĒVO website to help you determine what temperature to use and length of time to dry, activate or infuse!

Any hacks or shortcuts that you've discovered while using LĒVO?
If I know I want to infuse something such as an herb, but I’m not ready to do the actual infusion, I will use my LĒVO II to dry it while I have the herb in my garden so that when I am ready to infuse, I can just go right to the infusion cycle, so it’s essentially prepping for future infusions, and if I have more than one ingredient dried and ready, it gives me options to mix dried ingredients to infuse.


About the Event

What can viewers expect to learn from the live event?
I’ll talk about mint plants, mention some different varieties of mint and give some tips for growing your own at home, and then show how to dry and infuse it into the coconut oil with my LĒVO II. Even if you don’t want to make chocolate or infuse it into coconut oil, or if you want to use something other than mint, it will give viewers an idea of what’s possible with LĒVO!

Do you have any upcoming projects or events that you'd like to promote?
I don’t have anything in particular planned at the moment, but I’m always experimenting in the garden and in the kitchen!

Final Thoughts

What do you love most about being a part of the LĒVO community?
I love that ideas just keep flowing through the community, and I can always find the answers to any of my questions.

Any advice for those new to the world of infusions?
To not be afraid to try it. It’s pretty hard to make any major mistakes, and even if you do make a mistake, it can usually be troubleshot pretty easily.
