(4) Mon Feb 14 2005 16:41 PST They Keep Coming: Ie. the recipes from Sumana's mother. This is a cold/sore throat remedy that really surprised me. You grind pepper into a saucepan full of water and boil the water. Then you grate ginger into it and drink it. Shocking!

Shocking, but does it work? That much pepper and ginger ought to do SOMETHING...

It worked pretty well when I tried it this morning. I think I'll make some more after dinner.

Leonard, you should post the real mensinsauru recipe I got from my mom, which also includes cumin, turmeric, and a clove or two.

Someone told me that she put tea tree oil on her cold sore when she could first feel it getting ready to surface, and that it worked and never even showed it's face.
