INTRODUCTION

The name itself is from the Spanish: sarza, meaning brambles, and parilla, meaning vine.

TYPICAL PREPARATIONS

SUMMARY

Sarsaparilla is remembered by many as the perfect thirst quencher on a hot summer day. There are approximately 350 species worldwide in the genus. Sarsaparilla seems to be another case where science is slowly learning that many of the traditional uses are valid.
