|Curing Your Gourd||v|
For your gourd to be ready for use, it needs to be cured. This helps prevent cracking and moulding and improves the flavour.
Add a few spoonfuls of Yerba Mate to your gourd. Pour hot (not boiling) water into the gourd until it is full.
Warning: boiling water may crack your gourd.
Let the gourd sit in a well-ventilated place for 24 hours, topping it off with water as the gourd absorbs it. Pour out the contents of the gourd and thoroughly scrape the pulp from inside the gourd using a spoon. Be careful to avoid scraping off the nub in in the centre of the bottom.
Rinse thoroughly under running water.
Repeat if necessary.
