An excellent Tonic for Colds and Flu
- Clump of fresh ginger as in picture
- 2 litres of water
- Rock sugar or honey (to sweeten)
Release all its natural strength of your ginger by grating or you can break fibres of ginger with a kitchen mallet or rolling pin. Place in a medium saucepan, with the 2 litres of water. Bring to boil and allow to simmer until liquid is reduced to half. Use a yogurt strainer or coffee filter to strain the ginger-infused soup. Add a small amount of water if the stock has reduced very much.
Drink 1 cup at a time as required until soup is finished (approx 1 day).
Add rock sugar or honey to taste.
Repeat as often as you need.
