Store in an air tight container in the fridge for up to one week.
To make pine powder:
How to make pine powder: Gather pine boughs and hang them in your home to dry (choose a dry area of your home). After about two weeks (depending on moisture levels in your home) remove the needles from the branches (it is ok if little bits of branches get into the needles). Place the needles into a good quality coffee grinder or mixer and grind into powder!
