Home Remedy--Constipation

Good Morning here are a few remedies for constipation in adults and children.

Constipation (In adults)
Eat a few black licorice sticks.
Take apple pectin.
Make sure you're getting enough Folic Acid in your diet.
Drinking ginger tea will help start a bowel movement.
One tablespoonful of corn syrup added to 8oz of water.

Constipation (In Small Children)
Soak 6-8 raisins in hot water. When cool, crush well and strain. When given routinely even to little infants, it helps to regulate bowel movement.

I can't believe how much stores will charge for one of those cookie mixes in a jar. Anywhere from $7 to $15 dollars. Sheesh! You could just buy a jar at the dollar store and make your own and print out the instructions on your computer.

Supplies You Will Need:
1 Ball® Wide Mouth Quart Glass Preserving Jar
1 Ball® Collection Elite® Platinum Wide Mouth Lid with Band
Or any decorative Quart sized jar

Ingredients You Will Need:
2-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup minced candied orange peel
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ginger
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon cloves

Step 1, Getting Started:
Read all instructions before starting. Assemble all supplies and measure all ingredients.
Step 2, To Prepare Layered Mix-in-a-Jar:
1.) COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt. Place mixture into a quart jar. Firmly pack flour mixture in jar using a tamper. Combine candied orange peel and raisins and layer mixture over flour mixture, gently pressing to make an even layer. Place light brown sugar in jar and pack firmly with a tamper.
2.) STIR together granulated sugar, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and cloves until evenly blended. Layer sugar mixture in jar. Adjust cap. Makes base for one recipe of Orange-Raisin Ginger Cookies.

Instructions to Include with the Jar of mix:
To Prepare Orange-Raisin Ginger Cookies
Makes about 2-1/2 dozen cookies
Ingredients You Will Need:
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup mild flavored molasses
1 large egg
1 cup granulated sugar 1.) REMOVE mix from one quart jar, keeping layers separate. Beat butter, light brown sugar and granulated sugar mixture until light and fluffy, using an electric mixer. Beat in egg and molasses.
2.) ADD remaining dry ingredients, mixing just until evenly combined. Form dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate dough until firm, about 2 hours.
3.) PREHEAT oven to 350º F. Remove dough from refrigerator. Shape dough into 1 1/2-inch balls. Roll each cookie ball in granulated sugar to dust, optional. Place cookie dough on parchment lined baking sheet 2-inches apart. Bake at 350º F for 10 to 12 minutes

I also have a few drink recipes you can make. I've made the cafe au lait recipe in the past and given it as a gift and people really seemed to like it. I don't like coffee so I can't really tell you whether it's any good or not.

Cafe Au Lait Mix

Combine 6 oz, instant non-dairy creamer (1 1/2 cups), 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup instant coffee crystals, and dash of salt. Store in airtight container. Makes 2 cups mix.

Directions to pack with mix: For one serving, mix 1/4 cup mix with 2/3 cup boiling water.

Now I usually give these in a canning jar, or save some small jelly jars, add the directions and your ready to give!

Spiced Mocha Mix

2 cups sweetened cocoa mix
1/3 cup instant coffee crystals
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine cocoa mix, coffee, and cinnamon. Stir thoroughly. Store in airtight containers. Makes 2 1/4 cups mix.

Directions to pack with mix: For one serving, combine 3 Tablesppons mix with 2/3 cup boining water in a cup.

Hot Tea Mix

1- 9 oz jar orange flavor breakfast drink powder (1 1/4 cups)
3/4 cup iced tea mix with lemon and sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves

Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Store in airtight containers. Makes 2 cups mix.

Directions to pack with mix: For one serving, combine 2 tablesppons mix with 1 cup boiling water in a cup.

Hot Choco Coffee Mix

2/3 cup Granulated sugar
1/3 cup Cocoa
1/4 tsp. Ground cinnamon
1/4 cup Instatnt coffee granules

Measure sugar into small bowl. Sift cocoa, cinnamon and coffee granules into sugar. Stir. Store in plastic bag or jar with tight fitting lid. Makes about 1 cup mix.

Directions to include: Heat 1 cup milk in large mug in microwave on high for about 2 minutes or until very hot. Add 1 1/2 Tbsp. mix. Stir. Serves 1.

Well, I hope someone found something useful here today. Have a great Thursday and remember just 2 weeks until Christmas!
