Slippery elm is a species of elm tree native to eastern North America. It is called “slippery” because the inner pith of its bark contains a high degree of mucilage. On contact with water, slippery elm powder becomes mucilaginous (slimey, gel-like) in texture. For this reason, powdered slippery elm bark is a popular ingredient in salves, ointments and other topical skin.
Slippery Elm Bark Powder makes an excellent flour extender and can be used in a variety of recipes. Some writers claim that it has a food value equal to that of oatmeal. Slippery Elm Food is generally made by mixing a teaspoonful of the powder into a thin and perfectly smooth paste with cold water and then pouring on a pint of boiling water, steadily stirring meanwhile. It can, if desired, be flavored with cinnamon, nutmeg or lemon rind.
