With a new found obsession of essential oil uses and natural remedies, and the Farmer complaining of a scratchy throat, the search was on. This old Korean tea recipe was found. Convincing him that there are alternatives to the old timey cure of a touch of moonshine mixed with horehound candy ( famous moonshiner Popcorn Sutton's cure for everything) was a bit of a task, but to avoid the constant pestering, he relented. Not to mention the fact that moonshine is a little scarce around here. Thus the alternative!  A  1/2 pt. jar  filled about 1/2 full with sliced lemons. A little grated ginger added for some zing. The jar filled with organic, local honey, from yours truly, or another good source, covered with a lid, then refrigerated. After about a week, the lemons go all marmalady and the honey thickens. At the first sign of the crud, take a good spoonful, put in a cup, add boiling water to make a tea tonic. Drink it down!  Much better than narcotics that infiltrate your system and leave you groggy. From our farmstead to your table, thank you for all of your support!!! Oh, if you don't get around to making some, I will have a batch or two in the market!
