I can't find fresh horseradish right now so I am waiting until everything I use is fresh.

Keep us posted on how it goes!

I am assuming its okay as I eat all of these foods. I would also juice any of these foods and drink them under certain circumstances (i.e. onion juice for heavy congestion).

I just think you have to be careful that you don't get too much. YOur baby could get a gut ache and your milk could taste unpleasant. I think those are the only problems with this.

This looks GREAT!! Our family is BIG on garlic but I haven't thought of using these other ingredients for properties that would mazimize the benefits of garlic! Thanks for this!! I'll be trying it soon!

What is the difference between the properties between a white onion and other onions?

Default Re: Immune Booster Recipe

Mine will be "done" AKA the two-weeks stewing--tomorrow. I'm hesitant to open the jar.

I was talking with someone about it and she said that I should date it and put it in a dark place. That the longer it sat the more potent and valuable it became, and that in biblical days things like that were considered "wealth" because your health was your wealth.

If I decide to open it, I'll let you know, but more than likely I'll label it and put it in the cabinet in the garage and wait to try it until one of us is sick.

Default Re: Immune Booster Recipe

Mine is warm, but not untolerable. I taste more vinegar and garlic, and the heat doesn't last long...less than a minute..but we follow it with honey and bread. I also add O.J. to 1/2 and 1/2...so that may have a bit to do with it....I also didn't gargle. But I wouldn't have a problem doing it plain and gargling b/c I did taste it alone. I'm just doing it this way b/c dd is a bit sick, so I take it first just how I have her do it. It's still gross. I'm having dh pick up some avacados when he comes home from work and I'm going to try to mix it with that for her so she can eat it with chips.

I was wondering if by doing it this way it loses some of the effect b/c it isn't in as much of direct contact with the mouth and esophagus linings, which absorb things very easily.
Any thoughts on that?

In any case, it may make a good marinade!

It's getting hotter! Mine's now just over a month old. I definitely can't give it to dd now. It warms me up good now! My ears get hot! ...of course, I don't mind so much. It's the taste that's the hard part. It's a lesson in "taking your medicine" if ever there was one!
