So, finally succumbed to asking you on FB about ways to treat my sore throat.

What a lovely response, thank you so much.  I will try them all tonight!

One that is fun is from Joanna in Amherst, who shared her Russian Tea recipe, that's supposed to nip cold, sore throats and even the flu in the bud.  She got the recipe from this site.

Here it is, and yes you use Tang :-)
