>Ginger, Garlic and Honey

This recipe I shared with my class this weekend is the one I reach for a the first sign of a cold in me or the children.

To make it is quite simple:

Crush or chop five to eight cloves of Garlic
Slice a ginger root in thin slices (approx. 5 thin slices)
Please garlic and ginger and a jar and cover with honey
Let the herbs release their properties in the honey for about three weeks and then you are ready to use.

Garlic anti-microbial, and antibiotic properties makes it a supreme infection fighter, its indicated in ear infections and coughs and colds. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory and aids with coughs, colds and generally all respiratory problems. And honey is the soother. One tablespoonful for adults and one teaspoonful for children. Honey should not be given to children under the age of 2.

During this winter season, no home should be without this quick remedy.
