Hops are the female flowers (also called seed cones or strobiles) of a hop species Humulus Lupulus. They are used primarily as a flavoring and stability agent in beer,to which they impart a bitter,tangy flavor. They are also used for various purposes in other beverages and herbal medicine.
I dedicate this to my husband and son, home-brewers and hop farmers extraordinaire !
