Old-fashioned Cough Medicine

This medicine was given to me when I was younger for colds/coughs.  Since it is now recommended to not give your young children medicine, I am trusting the old-fashioned method.

Ingredients:
Equal parts of the following:
Lemon Juice
Whiskey
Water
Honey

I used a quarter cup each. Mix all ingredients in a small pot. Heat on low until the honey dissolves. Cool and store in refrigerator. Children should take about 1 tsp. every 4-6 hours. Adults can take 2 Tbsp. every 4-6 hours. Use with caution if taking other medications that might be affected by alcohol.

Slow Cooker BBQ Baby Back Ribs

These ribs are the most delicious ribs I have ever tasted.  Even if you are not a fan of ribs (which I was not a fan of them until I ate these) trying them is a must!

Ingredients:
1 rack of baby back ribs
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups ketchup
1 cup sweet chili sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
4 Tbsp. vinegar
2 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Season ribs with salt and pepper on both sides.  Place in shallow baking pan or cookie sheet.  Brown in oven for 15 minutes.  Turn over and brown another 15 minutes.

    3. In a large slow cooker, mix together the ketchup, chili sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, oregano and Worcestershire sauce.  Place ribs in the slow cooker.  Use a ladle to coat the ribs with the sauce.  (I’d rather wash a ladle than a bowl – if you were to mix the sauce in a bowl and pour over the ribs.)

    I try to use mostly organic ingredients however, this time I was using the last of my regular brown sugar.  The sweet chili sauce is not organic either and that’s because I don’t think there is an alternative.  I just love the Maggi sauce that is made in Thailand.  Where I live it is hard to find too.  It is a very sweet sauce but with just the right amount of heat.
