Your health: Victoria Pike says local honey helps quiet coughs

Her Vickyquil recipe includes another Kentucky product, a cure in itself, and yet another from off. She's grateful for Donna Jones' locally grown, locally available honey (Big Black Dog Farm Honey), sold at the local Farmer's Market on the Square; and a CM reminder that this is Farmers Market week in Kentucky.

I absolutely loved Miss Donna's local honey. It has such a wonderful flavor and local honey is supposed to be good for folks with allergies. I am going to give it a try for that.

I have a mixture I call Vickyquil which includes honey, real lemon juice, and bourbon.

Before we had cough syrup, older generations used this mixture to quiet coughs. I use equal parts and bring it to a boil and sip it warm for a sore throat or to clear out a thick throat from allergies.

Thank you so much, Miss Donna, for providing us with local honey. It is delicious. - Victoria Pike
