Sriracha-Sizing My Cold

Sriracha-sizing My Cold

My cold continues, entering week two. As an ongoing natural cold remedy I’ve been taking regular hits of my homemade delicious garlic-ginger-chili butter. (Garlic, ginger and hot chilis all being good for boosting your immunity and natural cold-fighting abilities.)

Here’s the recipe. Combine:

1 stick of butter, melted

6 gloves of garlic, minced

3 inches of ginger, grated

Sriracha chili sauce, as much as you can stand

A pinch of salt

Mix it all together and slather it on anything you like.

Garlic-Ginger-Chili Bread

Lately I’ve been putting it it on French bread, under the broiler for three minutes. Put it on a baked potato, steamed veggies, crackers. The possibilities are endless and it keeps for a while.

The doubly great thing about this butter is not only is it delicious, but when you’re sick, you can really taste it. (I tend to use the recipe amounts as a starting point, not the rule.) So, when I’ve got a cold, when I’m not consuming pots of Thai hot and sour soup (also full of natural goodness–lemongrass, ginger, chili), I’m chowing on this butter.
