35. Sturdy stock

Running tip #35

I often tell people the reason I never get sick is because I have the constitution of an Irish potato farmer.  I also believe I have a freakish immune system that works triple-time to zip through any bug or virus I encounter.  It’s kind of a joke in our family that I go to bed sick and wake up well with an illness that laid everyone else low for a week.  On the rare occasion a good night’s sleep does not knock out my cold, I drink my friend Kim Certain’s special brew to crush the spirit of any resilient germ.

Gently boil all of the following in one cup of water for 3 minutes:

  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • juice of one lemon
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Strain mixture before drinking.


Warning: sphincters beware the morning after!
