From My friends at Samantha Ritter Honey. Delish, the BEST and CHEAP! The price has slowly risen now it is $7 for a pint (16 oz) But price that against the stuff at the store (the best, local, organic you can find) and you'll find that it is still a steal of a deal. So...if you want some, let me know, I will arrange with each individual how to get their honey!
I started using honey as a cough-cure for my daughter, Constance, when she was about 4. She is (as I found out after some trial and error), allergic to morphine....the cough syrup that you get over- the -counter, is made with dextromethorphan - a derivative of morphine...anyway, we started using honey (ONLY FOR CHILDREN OVER AGE ONE< MIND YOU!) and it works great. It sure does taste a lot better too! In the years since, my Doctor's office has only suggested honey for a cough, no meds...funny how nature works best, huh?! :0)
Here is a great bit of info on the benefits of honey, as well as cinnamon...put them together and you have quite the natural powerhouse of health benefits!
For the adults out there, my friend Roseanne gave me an AWESOME recipe for when you are sick with a cold:
1/3 C honey
1/3 C fresh lemon juice
1/3 C whiskey
Heat up in a small saucepan until hot. Sip n' savor!
Enjoy the Michigan DEEP FREEZE I-YI-I!!!
