Tomato Tea

This is the latest craze around our house.

One night, when my husband could not breathe when he was supposed to be sleeping, he found this recipe on-line as a cure for severe sinus congestion. Supposedly these ingredients are known for their medicinal properties.  Using these ingredients together is supposed to help heal sinus/ear infections, colds, coughing and sore throat.  It was mentioned that it has even been found to kill flu germs and strep throat. 

I don't know about all that, but I do know that it tastes fantastic...and depending on how much tabasco you put in it, it just might curl your eyelashes, too!!  What a bargain, huh?!

Tomato Tea Recipe
2 cups V8 Juice
2-3 cloves garlic crushed (use more if you can) *I used minced from a jar
2 T Lemon Juice
Hot Sauce (the more, the as much as you can handle)

Mix and heat in a pan.  Sip slowly.  Re-warm as needed to get the full effects of the fumes.  It's all natural and healthy, so drink as much as you want or need until you are sure the infection is gone.

This sounds interesting. I'm going to have to remember this if I feel a cold/sinus infection coming on.
