Oak wood has had many popular culinary uses throughout history. Oak barrels have been used in traditional winemaking for centuries. Oak wood (but not the bark) has also been used for smoking meats. Oak bark has seen the most acceptance in herbal medicinal uses, supposedly alleviating digestive issues and a wide variety of other ailments.
Oak bark is the very tough, hard, and fibrous outer shield of the oak tree. With earthy and dusty aromas the bark is most often roasted, ground and infused into warm water to make tea. Oak wood has been traditionally used to impart vanilla, spice, clove, caramel, and smoky aromas to wines throughout the ages.
