i'm usually not physically sick, just--as my mom would put it--"sick in the head". but yeah, i've got some bug, itchy, scratchy throat, and some interesting effluvia. it'll pass. in the meantime, i'm sipping salabat(sahlabáht), ginger tea. occasionally spiked with citrus, but mostly as is: thinly sliced peeled ginger root, brown sugar to taste, boiled in water. i like mine super-spicy, so i use a thumb-sized bit of ginger for every cuppa i make.
a tip (possibly the only thing i've ever learned from martha stewart): an easy way to peel ginger is by using the side of a spoon.
no more slicy fingers and bits.
