Ginger Tea

If you drank this cold you might call it Ginger Ale because this is really what it is.  I got the recipe from Mother Earth News and it's supposed to both prevent and cure a cold. I  made a quart last night, drank most of it already and haven't caught a cold yet.  And, if I did, I think this would make the whole thing just a lot easier to take.

You will need:
a hand of fresh ginger root (yes, it's called a hand) You'll need enough for 4-6 tablespoons grated
1/2 cup honey
2-3 lemons
  • combine 4-6 Tablespoons freshly grated ginger root with 1 quart cold water and bring just to a boil
  • remove from heat don't want it to boil or it will bring out too much of the the spicy heat of the ginger
  • let this seep for 10 to 15 minutes
  • strain the ginger from the tea
  • stir in the lemon juice 
  • add 1/2 cup of honey to taste
Curl up with a good book and enjoy.
