Love IT or Lump IT … Let’s Talk Garlic

Why do some people simply Love Garlic while others Avoid it? Let’s at least discuss it and see what we might be missing out On or Not!! I’ve always wanted to talk about garlic because I simply adore the herb. It’s smell and flavour so distinct, welcoming and familiar, but I will at times leave it out of my cooking not to over-power other herbs and spices. Check out some of the Healthy, Easy to Follow Recipes on Cooking Pot the iPhone App.

Garlic is an intensely powerful herb and has been used in many Folk Remedies the world over for centuries. It originated in parts of Asia in ancient times of the Neolithic period for use in Food, Flavouring and Medicine. Its spread continued to Egypt, India and the Middle East and its medicinal properties were first recorded in the Sanskrit medicinal treatise, the Charaka Samhita (2nd century BC).

I’d like to explore and share a simple family cold and flu remedy that has been passed down to me. It works for us so it might work for you too.

Cooking Pot’s Cold and Flu Remedy (Use Raw and Organic Ingredients)

When coming down with a flu, I warm some milk, crush 2 cloves of garlic into it, add 1-2 tablespoons of butter (stir until it melts), add 2 teaspoons of Honey, stir and sprinkle with cinnamon. Drink it down. Don’t let it sit. Make sure the garlic is chewed and goes down with the butter. The butter is there so you don’t get a sore tummy from all that fresh garlic.
