  2. Hi Alicia,

    I’m not sure about dried cherries. But if you all have the flu, one thing I always reach for is ginger tea. You can get a fresh ginger root at the store and just finely chop a couple inches. Since it’s the whole family that’s sick, maybe do a small handful in a big pot of water. Boil it down to almost half (simmer really) and drink with honey. Might be pretty spicey for little ones, but I find it helps with stomach problems, aches and pains, sore throats, and fevers. If you need to break a fever this will do it! Very soothing. Water it down a little if it’s too much for you. Hope that helps! Oh, and eat raw garlic. I know, I know – stinky-poo. But if you all munch some with your dinner you’ll be surprised at how much it will help. Also breaks fever and great for fighting infections if that be the case too.

  3. Thanks Diane, I LOVE ginger tea!!! I never thought to give it to the whole family. I am going to go make that right now. I’ll try my best w/ garlic, don’t know how it’ll go over w/ the kids. We’ve been doing sambucol for them. Just ready for this winter to be over, we could all use a good dose of healthy sunshine!

  4. How long will this keep in the refrigerator? Can this be frozen to keep longer?
    Thanks for the recipe because I know this won’t interact with my meds.
