My father found an old notebook of his father’s a couple of weeks ago. Inside the front cover was a list of dates and places – my grandfather had noted down when and where he’d worked during his lifetime as a livestock buyer around New Zealand. He’d also jotted down other notes useful to his job, including comments about wool classing.
In amongst the notes was a recipe for arthritis.
4ozs [113g] each of bicarb of soda, ground ginger, epsom salts, powdered sulphur.
Roll out and put through a sifter. Keep in a screw top jar.
Dose: 1 teaspoon mixed in a little warm water taken at night for 1 year.
I wonder where the recipe came from? And, more importantly, does it work?
