Steam distillation

A brief description of steam distillation was given in the chapter dealing with flavoring, where we showed how to extract the essential oils (chiefly D-pinene) from juniper berries and other botanicals. But steam distillation is not, of course, restricted to juniper berries and gin flavoring — there is a whole world of plant materials out there containing aromatic and flavorsome oils, and many readers have expressed a wish to know more about the extraction process. At some later date we may write a "how to" book on the subject, but for the time being a few words attached to the present book could be of interest.
