Cough, Cold and Flu Soother

I can't quite sell it as a "remedy" but a number of sources do say the ingredients shorten Cold and Flu symptoms. It certainly helps us! I make up a batch of this at the first sign of winter time sniffles.

1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar(raw is best!)
1/4 cup hot water
1 TB fresh grated ginger (1 tsp ground ginger if fresh isn't available)
1 tsp cinnamon(fresh ground if possible)
1 /2 tsp ground cayenne pepper

2014---this year I doubled the batch and added a clove of garlic, then put it all in my vitamix so there were no chunks...I was worried that the garlic would not mesh well but all the other flavors really hid the garlic!

Mix all the ingredients in a jar with a tight lid, shake well to incorporate all the ingredients.

You can take it straight by the tablespoonful as often as you need
Mix it into hot water and sip it as tea
Add some Irish Flu remedy like Whiskey (or Brandy is fantastic too!) for a good nights sleep(obviously the latter is not appropriate for the kiddos, but its mommy's favorite LOL)
