MY REMEDIES FOR A COLD

Winter this year has been a horror!! The weather has been windy, cold, warm, unpredictable and long.  The dreaded chest infection has turned up on our doorstop and infected me – chief cook and bottle washer.  Look out, sirens are wailing and the boys are in panic mode (JUST KIDDING).

I have been taking every cold and flu supplement that I can find and living on vitamin c, ginger and garlic.

Tangelos are in season and they are so cheap at the supermarket at the moment, so I grabbed a few kilos and juiced them up.  I also zest them and freeze it for use all year round.

Lemons are perfect for squeezing into tea or making a drink with honey and ginger slices.

LEMON, GINGER AND HONEY DRINK

1 or 2 lemons

1 thumb slice piece of ginger, sliced finely

1 teaspoon of honey – more if you like it sweeter

1 cup of boiling water

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

Combine all into your favourite mug or make a larger batch in a teapot and let steep – DRINK IMMEDIATELY (can add whisky or brandy to make it into a HOT TODDY)
