The Farmacy

I love this.  Sadly, its not my 'fridge (though I wish it was!).What's in your Farmacy?

Once upon a time I saw a blog that gave a recipe for a tonic that used honey and elderberry syrup.  You would take a teaspoon of it each day.  I would love to know if anyone knows where I might find a copy of it?  It really helps when I give my prone-to-allergies son a teaspoon of local honey each morning.  Since elderberries are antiviral I imagine the combination would give colds and flu a one-two punch! 

The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while Nature 
affects the cure.


  1. Mine doesn't look like that either. Mine is mostly in my cupboard call canned and preserved! Nice thought though!

  2. I am with sweetland farms mine is all in jars too.

  3. I have a lot in jars and dried. But next year's project will be to have a salad garden in the high tunnel or in my future green house!

  4. Sharon,
    It was at dr. momi's blog, Homesteading At Redtail Ridge, under Black Ice Cream Vitamins. :)

  5. THANK YOU! I happen to have a child home sick, elderberries in the freezer and local honey. I'll be busy!
