Uruguay: Willows Soaking, Drinking Mate

By

Willows in Uruguay

In Uruguay they still use willow (mimbre) to tie up the vines after pruning. They are soaked first to improve flexibility.

Daniel Pisano is making and drinking a mate made from yerba mate (llex paraguariensis) which is popular in Uruguay and Argentina.
