Dept. of Home Economics: Healing Herbs

 In days of yore, every housewife knew how to treat illness and keep her family healthy with herbs and home remedies.  Did you know that you can make a tea from something that is probably growing in your yard right now that is rich in vitamin C and is good for winter illnesses such as coughs, colds, and sinus congestion?  You can read about it over at My Life In Food: A Culinary "Art" Journal.

May give a try. Lord knows got plenty of pine here in Arkansas River Valley.

Try it! It's actually quite delicious. I expected it to taste really strong and gross (like non-alcoholic gin) but it's very tasty. I've got some simmering right now, as a matter of fact!
