The first time I worked with frozen pandanus leaves I bought from a filipino market, I knew they were eventually going to land in my still, particularly after considerable effort to find live plants locally or on line turned out to be a big fail. $1.69 a bag for frozen pandan leaves was enough of a low financial risk that I could afford to at least try the frozen leaf distillation. I allowed for the leaves to partially thaw so I could cut them into small pieces. The final product was a pandan custard smelling hydrosol with a little bit of a grassy note. I’ve been using it for a few days and love the scent plus pandan has been very much my cooling friend on hot skin from the 100F heat.
See how I distilled it in the link below!
