Sweet Gale Buds
Sweet gale is mainly used in cooking to season dishes of all kinds, such as stews, soups, etc. Sweet gale buds are used in craft beer and microbrewery. Adding it to beers adds a touch of flavor and also froths them. They can also be infused to make a delicious boreal tea right here!

You probably also got stuck with your boat in one of his plantations.
