Honey and Lime

Homemade cough and sore throat remedy, as made at the Couvent Ste Marguerite, Port-au-Prince:


1. Reach out through the grillework of the outer hall/porch by the kitchen. Pull lime tree branch close enough to you to pull off a lime. Don't prick your fingers! (Who knew lime trees had thorns?!)

2. Wash lime. Chop into pieces.

3. Boil for a few minutes in pan of water.

4. Pour into cup with lots of honey. Add ginger tea bag if desired.

5. Burn tongue. Strange how water tends to be hot when recently boiled, isn't it.

6. Thank Sr. Marie Therese for the instructions.

7. Feel better!
