Healing Tea for Colds and Flu


This is a real example of "share the love." I got this recipe from Denise Nassar Rice at Edible Harmony who got it from a former coworker, Harrison K. from Harry’s Deli in Irvine, California. Blessings be to both of them every time someone benefits and shares this elixir! http://www.edibleharmony.com/author/mypurepantry/

Healing Tea Ingredients:

2 ½ quarts of water
½ lb of sliced ginger root
4 garlic cloves, sliced in half lengthwise
4 lemons, sliced
Cayenne pepper to taste (optional)

Healing Tea Preparation:

1) In a large saucepan add the water, sliced garlic and sliced ginger root.

2) Bring to a boil and continue to cook over medium-high heat for 20 minutes

3) Add the sliced lemon and boil for 5 more min. (Do not boil for longer or your tea will be bitter)

4) Remove from heat.

5) Squeeze the lemons by pressing down with a fork or a potato masher

6) Serve and sweeten with honey( preferably raw)

7) Add cayenne pepper (optional)

8) Enjoy & drink throughout the day (If it’s too strong just add a little bit of hot water).

9) Thank Denise :) (and Harry!)
