Fight A Cold ?

Its been said and passed down, from mother to daughter for many generations, that a steaming cup of honey and cinnamon tea is a great way to start the day in cold weather to help fight and ward off all sorts of conditions associated with the cold –some of these include, poor circulation, colds, coughs, fevers and lethargy that tends to plague us in cold damp weather.

Cinnamon is one of the oldest known spices, it is mentioned in the Bible as well as many herbal, medicinal books

Cinnamon tea contains manganese, calcium and iron. It has a warming effect, great for the achy chills and fever feeling, it has been said to improves the blood circulation throughout the body and increases the energy flow to the abdomen, helping the digestive organs work more effectively. It is know to relieve constipation, and reduce blood sugar.

Cinnamon Tea

To make cinnamon tea boil 1 teaspoon of dried cinnamon bark in a cup of water, add lemon and honey to your taste.

Cinnamon Honey

Flavor your honey with cinnamon, for an effective and yet natural remedy against upper respiratory problems. Put a couple of cinnamon sticks in a baby food jar, cover it with honey, put into the fridge and let it stand for a few days. You can use it to add to hot drinks or it is also great to cook and bake with! Taste great on a slice of toast or in a hot buttered biscuit.

Got a cough or a sore throat ?

Oh Honey then you need to try these make at home honey drops.

Honey Drops

Ingredients:

Honey as much or as little as you'd like! I used 3/4 a cup.

Directions:

In a small saucepan over low/med heat add your honey. Bring to a low boil. Clip your candy thermometer to the side of the pan. When it reaches about 300 (hard crack stage) remove it from the heat being very careful because honey burns easily!

On a piece of parchment paper or wax paper, pour teaspoon sized drops leaving room for them to spread a bit.

You can also lay a pop stick and pour about a tbs sized drop on top of it making honey pops... which works great with the kids!

Leave them on your counter to harden. Takes about 20 minutes.

Wrap individually in parchment paper and store in an airtight container. Should last 3-4 weeks.

      Sounds delicious.

      Honey is also one of the only known consumables that won't expire when it is in it's pure form. Just food for thought. ^_^
