A Cheaper and Effective Cough Remedy

Ginger Tea

1 inch of fresh ginger root, sliced thin or grated
1/2 a fresh lemon, sliced but not pealed
1 clove garlic, mashed
~2 c water
1 T honey

Place water, ginger, lemon, & garlic in saucepan; bring to boil, then turn down heat and simmer gently for 20 min. Strain into mugs and add lots of honey.

Ginger tea is very soothing to the throat. It will warm and open the chest and nasal passages. Plus there are all those vitamins and other good things!
