Soup Remedy for Colds

My friend, Scarlett, passed this recipe on to me. Looks like a wonderful natural soup for those lovely colds!

She said:

I thought I’d share this recipe that my step Mom, Mimi, gave me for when you have a cold or are sick. Cobe and I had some tonight and it actually tasted good.

Garlic Soup

8 cups chicken broth
25 cloves of garlic (peeled)
1 TBSP ginger
1 TBSP paprika
pinch of red pepper
1/2 cup lemon juice

Place in pot and cook until garlic is soft and then eat it all.

Thanks Scarlett! This will be excellent to have in the repertoire for the next illness! Always good to be prepared in advance!

    Another traditional indian recipe for a cold is 3 flakes of garlic smashed thrown in to 1.5 cups of milk. Add 1/2 tspn of organic tumeric or 1/2 tbspn of fresh tumeric juice(indian stores have fresh tumeric).Boil milk down to one cup and drink as hot as possible. Honey can be added as an option but the milk does get sweeter due to te higher lactose content when boiled down.twice a day for 3-4 days should be sufficient.

    Added information, this is especially good when you are one of the types who just cannot cough out your phlegm and spit it out!! The stuff is passed out through the intestines.
