Makes about 1 cup
I take a spoonful of this when I feel the sniffles beginning, have a scratchy throat or any flu-like symptoms. I take it throughout the day, but always before bed.

  • 6 to 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup raw, organic honey
  1. Peel garlic cloves. Put honey and garlic in a heavy-bottomed, nonreactive saucepan and heat gently over medium-low heat. When honey starts to bubble and simmer, stir and cook for about 3 minutes. Cover and remove from heat.
  2. When cool, pour into a clean, sterilized jar and seal with a lid. Keep in a cool place, out of sunlight, and use as needed.
