We still are not well at our house!! Can you believe this?!- The stomach flu is long gone. However, it has been replaced by a bronchitis type cold- I'm naturally a homebody but this is getting ridiculous.
I tried making a warm drink to soothe the pain in my chest and it really helped. The recipe is from a Southern Living Cookbook. I altered it a bit. This beverage is yummy and the honey, lemon and vitamin C encourage healing.
1 12 oz. frozen apple juice concentrate
3 juice cans of water
1/3 can of frozen orange juice concentrate
1 juice can of water
3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
9 whole cloves
1 (2 1/2-inch) cinnamon stick
I mixed all of these and put them into the crock pot. I let them warm up for about an hour and then began sipping it (obviously- don't drink the sticks). I just left it on warm in the crock pot all day. Dipping up a cupful and sipping as desired. It was delicious.
