Dear Aunt Nettie,
After dinner my boyfriend, Jeff, and I like to sit down in our giant lounger, drink a cup of herbal tea, and talk about stuff. But lately he's bored with herbal tea, even though I keep trying new kinds. I sure would like a recipe for something different.
Howdy there, Kelly,
Yer such a dear fer wantin' ta please yer man. Now, don't you fret none, darlin', cause I surely do have jes the right thing fer relaxin' an' sippin'. An' the nice thing is there's no fussin' with this recipe. You kin put a mighty fine cup in Jeff's hand in no time a-tall.
Yer ever lovin' Aunt Nettie
2 T. peeled and finely minced fresh gingerroot
1/2 t. finely minced lemon zest
2 T. maple syrup
Aunt Nettie grew up on the farm. She did not eat out of a can or reach into the freezer. There was no microwave to pop her food into. Everything she made was from scratch. All the food she ate was natural, without pesticides. It was grown right there on the family farm, and she had to cook to survive. At eighty-three years young she still leaps and bounds around the kitchen and can shake, rattle, and roll those pots and pans with the best of them.
Nowadays, Aunt Nettie just shakes her head and complains, "Nobody cooks anymore. They have no idea about puttin' a meal together." She's on a mission. She wants to help those younguns eat better so they can grow up healthy like her own eight kids.
