Hi, Very Happy

My grandmother used to make us a wonderful mixture when we had a bad cold Crying or Very sad

1. In a small saucepan she poured a glass of white wine (the size of the glass depends on your “thirst” Mr. Green ), added 3-4 dried figs (this is the secret Wink ) and 2 sugar spoons. Then, she boiled the mixture for 3-5 minutes (some foam is formed). Let the mixture to cool for a few minutes.
2. Drink the hot sweet wine and stay in bed Crying or Very sad .
3. In a few hours your cold disappeared Very Happy .

I love to drink this mixture, even withouth having a cold..... Mr. Green

I hope you enjoy this hot wine....is really nice.
Marta.

Hola Very Happy
Mi abuela nos hacía un brebaje maravilloso cuando teníamos un fuerte constipado Sad :

En un cazo ponia un vaso de vino blanco (el tamaño del vaso depende de la "sed" que uno tenga Mr. Green ), 3-4 higos pasos (el secreto Wink )y 2 cucharadas de azúcar. Se hierve la mezcla durante 3-4 minutos (hace espuma). Una vez que ha enfriado un poco, se bebe y se guarda cama Sad . En unas pocas horas, el resfriado ha desaparecido o al menos ha mejorado Very Happy .

Me encanta este brebaje, aunque no tenga resfriado Mr. Green .

Espero que atodos les guste también
Marta

By "prickly pears" or "higos pasos" do you mean dried figs or the cactus that is called prickly pear al otro lado del mar? My guess is dried figs, but some of our members in the EEUU may be a little confused.

It does sound like a good recipe. I don't think I'll wait for a cold.

Figs are also very good cut in half and lightly grilled over a fire, then placed on fresh baby greens and topped with a little crumbled cabrales.

Fresh figs. A drizzle of balsamic vinegar on them is also good.

La receta de mi familia para el catarro es

1 taza de leche
1 yema de huevo...revolverla en la leche fria
4 clavos de olor
cascara de limon
2 o 3 palitos de canela
1/4 cucharadita de nuez moscada
1/4 cucharadita de anis en grano o 3 estrellitas de anis...
1 cucharada de miel
1/2 cucharadita de vainilla
1/2 taza de ron

Se hierve la leche con los clavos, la cascara de limon, la canela,
la nuez moscada, el anis....cuando todo comienza a hervir,
se baja del fuego y se cuela todo, se le agrega la miel, la vainilla
y el ron....se sirve y se siente uno acabado de nacer!!!

My family's recipe to cure the cold

1 cup of milk
1 egg yolk ( mixed with the cold milk )
4 cloves
lemon peel
2 or 3 cinnamon sticks
1/4 spoon of nutmeg
1/4 spoon of anise
1 tablespoonful of honey
1/2 spoonful of vanilla
1/2 cup of run

Boil the milk with the cloves, lemon peel,cinnamon sticks, nutmeg,
anise. When it starts to boil you take it out of the heat, then you take
away the dry ingredientes, you add the honey, vanilla and the run
you serve it and you feel like a new born baby !

Hi, Raquel:

Is this recipe that of a punch? Very Happy

We have several recipes for punch. Some of them include "orujo" instead of ron, others coffee instead of vanilla, condensed milk instead of milk and honey, etc......all them wonderful to sweep away a bad cold..... Mr. Green
Personally, I hate those made with orujo, I find it horrible.... Evil or Very Mad
(Orujo: strong alcoholic liquor distilled from grape or herbs pressings)

Hola Raquel:
¿Esta receta es de ponche?

Tenemos varias recetas para hacer un ponche, algunas incluyen orujo en lugar de ron, otras café en lugar de vainilla, leche condensada en lugar de miel y leche, etc.....todas maravillosas para llevarse un resfriado... Mr. Green

Personalmente, los de orujo no me gustan nada, el orujo me sabe fatal. Evil or Very Mad
(Orujo es el aguardiente obtenido del bagazo de las uvas o de determinadas hierbas).
