Having a rough time with the ensuing season. Feeling something coming on? This Garlic Syrup sat in my kitchen without refrigeration for a total of 3 years until I finally used it all. No bacteria, nothing grew in it or spoiled it in anyway.
Place one pound of peeled, minced Garlic is a wide-mouthed 2 quart jar. Almost fill the jar with equal parts apple cider vinegar and distilled water. Cover and let stand in a warm place for four days, shaking a few times each day. Add one cup of glycerin and let is stand another day. Strain and filter the mixture with pressure through a muslin or linen cloth. Add one cup of Honey and stir until thoroughly mixed. Store in a cool place.
This is excellent for coughs, colds, sore throats, bronchial congestion, high or low blood pressure, heart weakness and nervous disorders.
Dosage: one tablespoon, three times daily, before meals.
