Garlic has many health benefits besides removing toxins. It’s good for the heart (garlic lovers love garlic) and it’s good for balancing blood sugar. Often referred to as the “stinking rose” I grew Heritage Garlic (Music & Russian) for many years at Splendour View Garden.
Today I would like to leave you with something good for you and your breath. The recipe is called Garlic Champagne. How I got this recipe is a story I will write someday. But for now, you can rest assure the “ageing” part of this brew removes the odour within a few moments on the breath. My husband and other’s have tested this. I couldn’t because as a long-time user I don’t smell it anymore.
If cholesterol levels or circulation are something you’re thinking about, give this recipe a try along with all the other good stuff you’re doing… AND let me know what improvements it makes in your life!
In a blender, in batches blend:
8 large cloves of garlic
6 lemons peeled in sections – not juiced as
the fibre of the lemons is important
1 -1/2 cups of honey
4 cups of water
1 tsp cayenne (opt. amt)
Keep in the fridge in a glass jar
Stir once a day for 8 days
Strain through cheesecloth
Refrigerate in glass container
This recipe will last in the fridge until finished as the honey and lemon are natural preserves. You can also up the 1 Tbsp/day to 2 or 3 if you feel a cold coming on.
