Coconut cure for a sore throat:
I found this recipe in a book. It's from Southeast Asia and uses coconut sugar, which is made from the sap of the coconut blossom as well as coconut milk. You can substitute the coconut sugar with honey.
1 tablespoon coconut sugar or honey
1/8 teaspoon cracked peppercorns
1 teaspoon powdered turmeric or turmeric root
1 cup water
1/2 cup coconut milk
Mix together the sugar or honey, peppercorns, turmeric and water. Bring to a boil then simmer until the liquid is reduced by half. Remove from heat, strain, and add coconut milk.Take two tablespoons every hour or two. Apparently it works wonders!
