today's recipe

It's a simple one, because I'm feeling sick.

Ginger Tea (Nausea Relief Attempt #3)

1 3cm knob fresh ginger, sliced thickly
2 cups water
1/4 tsp honey
sugar to taste

Place ginger, water and honey in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Once boiled, pour into a teapot and allow to steep. After steeping, pour over a tea strainer and add sugar (or more honey) to taste.

My other nausea relief attempt (#2) was to chew on a sprig of fresh mint. That worked, but I really don't like mint as a flavour on its own. It needs to be in a salad or in a dish or something, so while it helped, I like the tea better.

Just in case you're wondering, nausea relief attempt #1 was a bowl of plain boiled white rice. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I'm going to blame this one's failure on the fact that rice was basmati, and the whole theory behind the remedy is that the starch coats your stomach and basmati is hardly the starchiest of rices.
