Drug companies won’t like this getting around.

Honey is produced in most of the countries of the world. Scientists of
today also note honey as very effective medicine for all kinds of
diseases. Honey can be used without side
effects which is also a plus. Today’s science says that even though
honey is sweet, when it is taken in the right dosage as a medicine, it
does not harm even diabetic patients. Researched by western scientists:

HEART DISEASES: Make a paste of honey and cinnamon powder, put it on
toast instead of jelly and jam and eat it regularly for breakfast. It
reduces the cholesterol and could potentially save one from heart
attack. Also, even if you have already had an attack studies show you
could be kept miles away from the next attack. Regular use of cinnamon
honey strengthens the heart beat. In America and Canada, various nursing
homes have treated patients successfully and have found that as one
ages the arteries and veins lose their flexibility and get clogged;
honey and cinnamon revitalize the arteries and the veins.

ARTHRITIS: Arthritis patients can benefit by taking one cup of hot water
with two tablespoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon
powder. When taken daily even chronic arthritis can be cured. In a
recent research conducted at the Copenhagen University, it was found
that when the doctors treated their patients with a mixture of one
tablespoon Honey and half teaspoon Cinnamon powder before breakfast,
they found that within a week (out of the 200 people so treated)
practically 73 patients were totally relieved of pain — and within a
month, most all the patients who could not walk or move around because
of arthritis now started walking without pain.

water given to a cholesterol patient was found to reduce the level of
cholesterol in the blood by 10 percent within two hours. As mentioned
for arthritic patients, when taken three times a day, any chronic
cholesterol-could be cured. According to information received in the
said Journal, pure honey taken with food daily relieves complaints of
cholesterol.

COLDS: Those suffering from common or severe colds
should take one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon
powder daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough,
cold, and, clear the sinuses, and it’s delicious too!

iron in large amounts. Constant use of Honey strengthens the white

diseases.

tablespoons of honey taken before food is eaten relieves acidity and

I see some color on my tomato plants – first of the season – WOOT WOOT

Tomato Plant

Tomato Plant

Early this afternoon I went out to check on my tomato plants and wouldn’t ya know – I see some orange and red !!! First sign of color on my tomato plants this year.

Now that I have 2 rabbits, I’ve been using their droppings for fertilizer along with a tea/coffee soup mix from once used morning tea bag and coffee grounds. I cannot believe how tall my tomato plants are getting. Some are easy 9 feet tall so far and I can’t even get the whole plant in a picture. Below is a picture of a some of the plants. I’ll show the stragglers in another post.

The 14 tomato plants I do have come up every year, I never have to buy tomato plants, unless, I want a different variety of course.

About 8 years ago I bought 3 Ponderosa Beefmasters and 2 Tommy Toes. They grew to have a few nice tomatoes the first year .. I believe I canned 3 jars of stewed tomatoes that year and plenty of table tomatoes. I planted them 2 feet apart in a row.

The following year, those same plants came up again, along with a few straggler plants, growing taller with more harvest. 8 years later I have 14 tomato plants and about a dozen straggler plants. The straggler plants are always cherry tomatoes. The straggler plants die every year but they give me heaps and heaps of cherry tomatoes and last well into late Fall. My permanent resident tomatoes don’t die off till the first frost.
The interesting thing about these 14 tomato plants is they give me both large – medium – small and cherry tomatoes on the same plant. There is usually a bunch of 9-12 tomatoes and one or two Beefmaster type and the rest get smaller with the smallest (not even really small) being the cherry tomato. The cherry tomatoes always show color and get harvested first. I didn’t think it to be possible. But, I love my tomato plants. Ha Ha

 

Lemon Meringue Pie Recipe #LebanonPa #RPF #LebCo #Pennsylvania

Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon Meringue Pie

Another favorite pie I like to make is the  Lemon Meringue Pie. Very refreshing treat if your an outside laborer during the hot months of the year. I make everything from scratch but you can buy commercial. Scratch I think tastes better because you can adjust to your liking everything and everyone knows it’s home made and healthy.

TIP: so you don’t have to preheat the oven twice, it’s best to make the lemon filling and while it cools a bit bake the pie shell. Have the lemon filling finished before you bake the pie shell or bake the pie shell while your making the filling. That way your oven isn’t sitting heated to 350 and nothing in it. But you can do as you like.

1 pastry pie shell (make your own see below or commercial is fine)

(Bake your pastry pie shell about 5-7 mins @ 350. If making your own be sure it’s rolled thin you don’t want a apple or peach type pie shell for a Lemon Meringue Pie)

Lemon filling  (you can make your own or buy commercial pie filling)

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup cornstarch

1. 1/2 cups cold water

3 egg yolks (mixed up some) – (save the whites for the meringue)

1 Tbs lemon zezt (grate some lemon rind very fine)

1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh lemon is the best)

1 Tbs butter

In a medium saucepan combine sugar and cornstarch. Slowly mix in water till smooth. Stir in mixed up eggs. Mix well. Bring to a boil on medium heat stirring constantly. Boil about 1 and 1/2 minutes.

Remove from burner, stir in zest, juice and butter. Mix well. Should be thick.

Add to baked pie shell. Set aside.
