Quick Overview The Slippery Elm is native to North America and is derived from the inner bark of the Red Elm tree. The inner bark was very popular among both Native Americans and European settlers. They used it to improve the flavour of game; to prevent lard or butter from turning rancid, as a flour extender, and as a jelly thickener. Today it is also used a main ingredient in throat lozenges. In tea form it makes a very mild drink and has a peculiar sweetish aroma with a bland taste.
