Ajos sacha (a Spanish name meaning ‘false garlic’) is widely known in Peru as a medicinal vine exuding the distinctive odor of garlic. Not surprisingly, it contains some of the same odoriferous sulfur-containing chemicals found in garlic, such as alliin and allyl sulphides.
The root is prepared as a cold maceration. The advantage of the powdered root is that no maceration is required. Using a glass or enamel ware container, place 9 grams of the powdered root in 2 cups of cold water, cover the container to avoid contaminants, and let it sit in your refrigerator for at least 2 and up to 3 days. Before use, pour the liquid through a fine mesh screen to remove the woody particles. Alternatively, the powdered root could be placed in a fine mesh bag or mesh tea ball before allowing it to soak in cold water.
The cold water infusion is taken at a dosage of 1 cup 2 or 3 times daily. The recipe above will supply about 2 cups. To make a larger supply, simply increase the amounts of powder and cold water accordingly, and refrigerate unused portions in a well sealed container.
