Debbie's Remedy

December 04, 2009
Debbie made this 'concoction' drink last winter. As she had just returned from her European Summer holiday and was having a 'tingly' throat... she made this and brought to work... and I had the pleasure of 'tasting' her remedy. It was soothing .... and the ginger quickly warmed up my tummy!! Good for winter and must remember to have this warm ginger drink every winter... and since I am having a 'sniffle'... could do with a cuppa!!!

  • a handful of red dates
  • 4 or 5 honey dates
  • 2 inches of ginger - thinly sliced
  • some rock sugar
  • 4 or 5 chinese rice bowls of water
Everything in a slow cooker, and cook for 4 hours on LOW. Adjust the rock sugar to the level of 'sweetness' to your liking.
