The word placenta comes from the Latin for cake.
The placenta is an organ that connects the developing fetus to the uterine wall to allow nutrient uptake, waste elimination and gas exchange via the mother's blood supply.
So, first we had to rinse the placenta and drain the blood from it.
Once we removed the cord and drained the blood from it, we put it in the steamer.
And, steamed it...
While it was steaming, we took the cord and made a heart with it.
Once the steaming was complete, we cut it up and put it in the dehydrator.
Once it's completely dehydrated, I'll post about the next steps!
