This is a fantastic recipe to keep handy especially if you are getting sick with the changing of weather. I am hoping we are going to stay warm now, but you can never tell with Mother Nature. Here is a recipe for a Garlic Oxymel - this is a great immune booster to take at the first signs of a cold or flu.
Needed: At least 1 bulb of garlic, Local honey*, Apple Cider Vinegar, Water.
• Peel garlic cloves and cut in half.
• Boil garlic in 4 cups of water until translucent.
• Remove water from stove.
• Add 1/4 cup of honey.
• Add 1/4 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar.
• Mix well.
Drink 1/3 to 1/2 cup of warm liquid, two to three times a day, eating at least 2 cloves of the cooked garlic with each serving. Oxymel may be kept covered in the refrigerator for 4 weeks.
*do not give honey to children under 1 year old.
