Use Coffee Filters to Make an Impromptu Infusion Satchel

Cheesecloth and muslin bags are the preferred wrapping material for bouquet garni (aka flavorful little bundles of tasty herbs and other flavorings), but a simple coffee filter can be used with the same results.

 

Not only I am much more likely to have coffee filters on hand than cheesecloth, but coffee filters are much cheaper (and compostable!). To make a little infusion packet for soups, teas, or tinctures, place your ingredients in the center of the filter, tie it up with a bit of twine, and submerge until your liquid is properly flavored. Remove, toss into the compost, and repeat as needed.
