interesting/BURNT TOAST TEA/WILD CHERRY COUGH SYRUP
BURNT TOAST TEA
1 slice bread
1 cup boiling water
Toast bread until it is black on both sides. Pour boiling water on the toast;
let soak for 2 minutes. Strain off liquid, mashing down toast with the back of a
tablespoon. Drink the tea while it is hot. If the first cup does not give
relief, drink another cup in 30 minutes.
WILD CHERRY COUGH SYRUP
1 teaspoon wild cherry bark
1 1/2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons chopped dried marshmallow root
2 cups water
2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 scant teaspoon cream of tartar
Make a decoction of the cherry bark and marshmallow root by boiling in water for
about 4 minutes. Steep the mixture with the cover on the pot for a few minutes.
Slowly stir in the sugar and cream of tartar. Simmer until the mixture becomes
thick and sugar granules completely dissolve. Transfer to a container and allow
to cool before covering tightly.
WILD CHERRY COUGH SYRUP AND DECONGESTANT
Cover the bottom of a crockpot with wild cherry bark. Add enough honey to cover
the bark. Set the crockpot at the lowest setting, then cover. Let the mixture
cook for two (2) days, stirring every now and then.
After two days, strain the mixture and use the resultant syrup as cough syrup
