Good heads up. I bought two jars of orange blossom, The nice lady knocked off 40p as the honey had started to crystallise, I don't mind that but I appreciate the gesture.

I cannot stand the taste of Liquorice though I do have bad guts quite often, I had an endoscopy and it came back fine- Doctor told me its linked to anxiety, though it could be the 2-3 bottles of whisky per week I was drinking till I stopped altogether just over a year ago.

Also I was drinking around 8-10 large cups of coffee(2 heaped tsp) a day with 3.5 tsp of sugar and since switching to tea I feel less stressed at work. I ran out of honey at work and put two spoons of sugar in my green tea and I had to pour it away, it was quite horrid. Surprising really

I prefer my cold cure without the Scotsman's revenge.
Yes sugar, like salt acts as a preservative......sugar and soap poultices were used (way back when I was a girl) to 'draw' the infection out of boils and wounds.

Ahh, Margaret, I went through a lot of soap and sugar when I was a spotty teenager with boils thrown in as a bonus!
Didn't the poultice have to be hot? I seem to remember being scalded many times.
The sulphur and treacle finished off the job of making me unapproachable!

Re: honey?

I don't think it mattered that much...although poultices by definition, are usually hot.
We had sulphur and treacle every spring time to stop us getting heat lumps.....and if we did get heat lumps we got more of the vile stuff.
I hated that stuff and a close second was Scotts Emulsion.

Re: honey?

I like my honey in the form of Drambuie, Glayva or Irish mist! Mind you, if it has to be spread on toast though (which is a bit tricksey with the aforementioned) we use the "Pure Lancashire Honey" made by Bickerstaffe Bears in Maghull which we bought from a local farm shop when over last.
