Mom's Glug

Kimmi Knippel (Sweet_Memories)


Mmmmmmm is for Mom!

I think Mom got this from her mother ("Grandma" Leona Puschak), but where she got it I have no clue.

I always have these ingredients on hand (especailly in winter), if anyone gets sick...this is the best! And it tastes good too!

I make a batch & drink it instead of tea & by the end of the batch...I'm feeling much better.
