Pioneers had their own brand of remedies. They were all natural, from the earth. Some of them were effective while others just make us laugh like “to cure fever blisters kiss a red-head.”
In my book The Pioneer Cookbook: Recipes For Today’s Kitchen I have a chapter on old pioneer remedies mixed with some modern homemade remedies. This tea is not in my book, I invented it recently for my husband who has a cough. I looked up several natural expectorants and put a few of them together to make this soothing and tasty hot tea.
Ginger Honey Lemon Tea
1 ½ cups hot water
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 lemon wedge
Pour the hot water into a large mug then stir in the remaining ingredients (squeezing the lemon juice from the wedge into the drink before stirring in the wedge).
