Flu Remedy

Here is a remedy of mine that has been tried, tested and appreciated by many over the years! 

It will help colds, coughs, 'flu', dry or sore throats. You may use it as a hot drink, or a soothing cold drink. I use it sometimes as you would any other 'hot lemon cold remedy', or keep some in a bottle cold beside me when I do a lot of telephone work to ease my throat when it gets tickly and dry. 

Cut 8 lemons, 3 or 4 oranges and 1 onion in half, and place in a large pan with 2 cloves of garlic.

Fill it with water and bring it to the boil, you want to simmer this as gently as possible for a minimum of 3 hours. A gallon, (8 pint pan), is ideal.

Strain the liquid carefully through a fine sieve and return to the pan. Add 1 bottle of glycerine, (you can buy it at the chemists), and 1 jar of clear honey. Top up the pan with water, (this is concentrated so you wont weaken it), and bring back to the boil for just a couple of minutes.

It is now ready for use, what you don't drink immediately, you need to bottle or keep in a container in the fridge, and it will keep for about a week.

Try it and send me your feedback!
