It’s that time of year again and with more cold weather fronts coming here’s a sweet tasting recipe to soothe those night time sore throats and coughs. Take a cup of Balkan linden honey, 3 tbsp of lemon juice and a quarter cup of warm water. Mix all together in a sterile jar and take up to 2 teaspoons full prior to sleeping.
For those of you who like to feel it’s got to taste like it will do you good , many swear by an onion, garlic, oregano and honey mix – although anyone sitting next to you may not agree! Equally, I give my children up to 2 teaspoons of honey (they like Balkan Linden) just before they go to sleep (and before they brush their teeth obviously!)
