Here's my DH garlic from this past Summer...grown in a pot* 8 mugs of water * 6 crushed garlic cloves * 2 whole lemons - sliced
* 2 rosehip tea bags * 1 root ginger - grated * 1/2 teaspoon thyme
* 1 pinch cayenne pepper
1. Simmer all ingredients together
2. Strain one mug off, add honey and whisky to taste, drink and go to bed.
3. Consume over 2 days and flu will be on its' way...
This mix tastes rather strong but we have tried it here...and it does help!!!
Garlic has been grown since before recorded history and probably originated in central Asia. It was important in the culinary, medicinal and religious practices of many ancient civilizations, and is said to have been fed to the Egyptian slaves building the pyramids to promote strength.
There are an astonishing number of myths and beliefs concerning garlic, ranging from its ability to ward off vampires to its use as a folk remedy for high blood pressure and for fighting diseases from the common cold to cancer. Modern medical research does not discount the value of garlic...Stephanie Alexander ~The Cook's Companion~
Couldn't resist putting this little bit in...especially since I have recently finished the Twilight Series of books by Stephenie Meyer...all about vampires!!!
