  1. Shannon says:

    Since you mentioned Ginger, sore throats ,and colds, I thought I'd mention my Ginger, red chili flakes, garlic, chicken stock remedy for cold etc. Steep a 3 inch sliced piece of Ginger, 4 cloves garlic, 1/2 tsp chili flakes (or more if you like hot foods) in homemade chicken stock. Salt and pepper to taste. Really works for congestion!! Ginger tea is also greet for morning sickness and nausea

    • My mom used to have me drink hot chicken stock with pepper flakes as a kid. I hated it back then, but love it now. I never thought to put in ginger and garlic. Thanks for tip.


  2. If you add the juice of half a lemon it makes it taste even better, and also better for colds

  3. Oh yes. I make ginger tea fot bronchitis or pneumonia. Works great to pull mucis out.

  4. Don’t toss the ginger when you’re done, put it in a pan with a little honey and cook until really thick, for candied ginger? It keeps months in the fridge. yum!
