Day 7 - Tree Bird Hop and a cough recipe

Here is Day 7, the last day this hop is going on.

Monday, March 23

Thanks Lana and Madame Samm!  It's been a Hoot!

I ran across this recipe from Barefeet in the Kitchen so am placing it here for future reference.

homemade COUGH remedy (adapted from Good Food Matters)

2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar (Bragg's if available)
2 Tablespoons Honey - Local raw honey is best
2 Tablespoons Water
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Place all ingredients in a small jar and shake well to combine.  Leave at room temperature for a few days or if needed longer then refrigerate.  Shake well each time before use.  The spices will not dissolve into the liquid.  It will not be a thick syrup, it should remain watery.  Take as needed.
Dosages for adults is about 1 Tablespoon and perhaps 1 teaspoon for children 5 years old and older.  Use your discretion with children under 5 years of age.

I'll have to tuck that recipe away for the flu and cold season.
