I’ve come to the internet cafe – the one I practically lived in during my first internet-less 4 months in Japan - to print out an invoice for the magazine article I had published last month. Since I have so much time to kill after the printing, I shall share with you a recipe from Miho. It is, perhaps, just perfect for this wintry cold and flu season. I have a suspicion I will need to try it very soon. Sorry, Sean, I’m heading for your stash of Barry’s.
- 1 cup milk
- ginger root, grated, to taste
- black tea, either in a tea bag or loose leaves
- small amount of water
- honey, if desired
- sugar, if desired
Boil a small amount of very strong black tea. Add grated ginger and milk. Boil again. Add honey and sugar, to taste, if desired.
Miho says this recipe comes from a friend of hers, who learned it in India. It is something like chai. Miho has been using this recipe for the past 20 years and says it is fantastic for sore throats and stuff noses. She recommends going to bed soon after drinking it. She says it will “make you to sweat out.”
Let’s all try Ginger Milk.
