    RECIPE # 25

    Childrens Cough Syrup

    Peel and slice 3 large onions into a saucepan. Add equal parts honey and lemon juice (I start with 1/2 c each). Cook until the onions are translucent. Strain. Put the liquid back in the pot and taste it. It should taste about like a honey lemon cough drop - just a hint of onion. It actually tastes good. 1 Tablespoon whenever they cough. This really works....I had chronic bronchitis when I was a child and nothing the doctor prescribed worked, but this did. I would have to a take a spoonful about every hour, but it worked.

    RECIPE # 26

    Mild Congestion

    Go to the doctor if you need to!

    1 c tomato juice
    1 t lemon juice
    1 t. minced fresh garlic
    1/2 t hot sauce

    Heat together and sip until feeling better. You can freeze this in an ice cube tray, or stick it in the fridge and it will last a few days

    RECIPE # 27

    Dandelion Pharmacy

    Dandelion Wine

    2gal/8 liter crock
    3-5 qts/3-5 liters blossoms
    5 qts/5 liters water
    3 pounds/1.5 kg sugar
    1 organic orange
    1 organic lemon
    1 pkg/8 grams live yeast whole wheat bread toast


    Find a field of dandelions in bloom on a glorious shining day. Follow the honeybees to the finest flowers. Pick them with a sweeping motion of your parted fingers, like a comb. I leave the green sepals on, but get rid of all stalks.

    Back home, put blossoms immediately into a large ceramic, glass, or plastic vessel. Boil water; pour over flowers. Cover your crock with cheesecloth. Stir daily for three days. On the fourth day, strain blossoms from liquid.

    Cook liquid with sugar and rind of citrus (omit rind if not organic) for 30-60 minutes. Return to crock. Add citrus juice. When liquid has cooled to blood temperature, soften yeast, spread on toast, and float toast in crock. Cover and let work two days. Strain.

    Return liquid to crock for one more day to settle. Filter into very clean bottles and cork lightly. Don't drink until winter solstice.

    Preparation time: A week's worth of effort yields a drink not only delightful but good for your liver, as well.

    RECIPE # 28

    Nettle Beer
    One of the most delightful medicines for joint pain

    1 pound/500g raw sugar
    2 lemons
    1 ounce/30g cream of tartar
    5 quarts/5 liters water
    2 pounds/1 kilo nettle tops
    1 ounce/30g live yeast Place sugar, lemon peel (no white), lemon juice, and cream of tartar in a large crock. Cook nettles in water for 15 minutes. Strain into the crock and stir well. When this cools to blood warm, dissolve the yeast in a little water and add to your crock. Cover with several folds of cloth and let brew for three days. Strain out sediment and bottle. Ready to drink in eight days.

    In regards to mommy magic's recipes, I think everyone should have at least a basic knowledge of herbal remedies for SHTF. I have been using herbal remedies for about 10 years now and hardly go to the doctor. We currently have about 40 bottles of tinctures and around 10 lbs of dried herbs for medicinal use. Up here in WI I generally rely on Yarrow, Plantain, Bouncing Bet, Sheep Sorrel, and Dandelion for food and medicines, we also collect elderberry and sumac.

    (poke in the ribs) dont let mommy fool ya, I taught her everything she knows about wildcrafting and herbal meds. LOL gotcha honey!!
    The devils greatest trick was convincing the world he didn't exist!!!

    NOTE: to each cup of herb oil, add 1/4 cup beeswax. if you wish a harder salve add more beeswax, if you wish a softer salve, add more oil. salve will store for years if in a cool, dark place.

    2- cups of water
    1/3- cup (80%) alcohol- rubbing alcohol, vodka ect.

    Using 5ml thyme tincture along with 5ml of calendula tincture then adding 5 drops of tea tree oil or thyme oil you can make the base for your tampon tincture-oil yeast infection remedy. Saturate a tampon with this mixture and water. Use this tampon twice daily, once in the morning and once at night for 1 hour at a time.
    That should alot like a recipe someone told me cures toe rot! Of course without the tampon.
