cold comfort

blackberry & spice tea








adapted from Moomins Cookbook: An Introduction to Finnish Cuisine by Tove Jansson and Sami Malila

a little less than 1/2 jar Bonne Maman blackberry preserves
1 t grated fresh ginger
1 cinnamon stick
2 1/2 c water
juice of one Meyer lemon
1 T slightly crushed cardamom pods

Simmer all ingredients gently for about half an hour and strain before serving. A little filtered water and honey to taste went into the boys' servings.

Comments:
Mmmm, sounds very nice, we're getting more rain and need some warm winter drinks.
 
Just the thing if you've got a cold. A good reliever.

By the the way, thank you very much for linking to my review of the Moomins Cookbook :)
