Food Monday ~ Preparing for Winter

I woke this morning to the first real sign of the change in the seasons: A line of condensation on the inside of my bedroom window.

Time to prepare for the winter ahead.

Sore throat remedy.

  • Turmeric
  • Honey
  • Ground basil
  • Hot water or milk

Make a paste of about a tablespoon in total – equal portions of each turmeric, honey and ground basil then dilute to about half a glass in hot water or more usually milk.

Gargle well and swallow. Repeat gargling to use all of the mixture.
Try it before going to bed and Bingo! – Next morning your throat should no longer feel like sandpaper!

Cold Cure

  • 1 large mug
  • 3 spoons of honey
  • 3 thin slices of root ginger
  • 2 lemon slices
  • 1 hefty shot of whiskey
  • 12 cloves
  • Pinch of Cinnamon

Stud the lemon slices with cloves put in mug with the remaining ingredients. Pour boiling water over the lot – drink – enjoy – Sleep like a baby

I suggest you print these out and stick them inside the door of your medicine cupboard. Well, it is the first place you go to seek out relief for all ailments.
