our house has been bit by the flu bug. it starts with aches and head pains then turns into a horrible sore throat and cough. first suki got it, then i did and now adam. we have been taking turns caring for each other, making a lot of miso soup and medicine tea.
our neighbor, tiffany, brought us some oranges back from her trip to florida, we have been using those in our medicine drink.
this is our recipe:
a few cloves of garlic minced
about an inch of ginger minced
1/8 tsp. or more cayenne pepper
1 tbsp chamomile flowers
1-2 tbsp honey
1-2 lemons or oranges juiced (or both)
boil the garlic and ginger for about a half hour in 5 cups of water.
add the cayenne pepper and simmer a few minutes then remove from heat.
add the chamomile and steep for 5 minutes.
strain and add the honey and juice.
