The Ginger Fix

I had a cold yesterday that took me down by the teeth.  Brewed a stockpot of fresh ginger tea and drank it dry with raw honey and lemon.  I live.

Buy a massive piece of fresh ginger.  Scrub it clean under fresh running water.  Cut it into chunks without peeling and cover it with 8 cups of water.  Simmer for an hour and start to drink.  Keep the tea on a simmer so that it continues to concentrate.  The honey has got to be raw.  I buy Really Raw from Maryland.  It’s a fortune, but Tylenol costs more for fewer doses and has no taste or poetry.

  1. Faye,

    I am interested in buying Really Raw. There are several on the website. Which do you recommend for tea and for cooking?

    Mille grazie.
