Raw Honey for Burns #NatureNates #MiracleHomeRemedies #BurnRemedy




This summer I burned my arm on the oven while I was cooking. I knew it was going to be a pretty bad burn because the pain radiated through my body from my head to my toes. My fiancé decided to look up remedies for burns and one of the remedies was honey. 
(Btw, when he was looking up remedies I was thinking this was a waste of time, I knew the remedies, butter, cold water etc.)
 Of course he rattled off those remedies and then he said Honey. Bingo, we had that and that was new to me. What we had was raw honey and I mention this because I feel like that has something to do with the success rate here.
 I slathered on some honey and immediately the pain was relieved. But how long would it last?  After that,  I never had a moment more of pain. Additionally the burn never blistered. I did get a mark on my arm but it's pretty much faded now. For months now we talk about how the honey worked for the burn. It was a miracle.
Fast forward to the other night . I'm serving fresh pizza out of the 400 °oven and the pizza has slumped tomatoes on top and one of those 400 ° suckers slides off the pizza onto my bare foot. (Yes, I am always bare foot, because I can be.) Anyway this is going to be a bad burn because I feel it from my head to my burnt toes. (Come back for the recipe for that Turkey Skin Pizza) Yeah, baby. Oh and here is the recipe for slumped toma-toes. Haha get it toma-TOES.

Comedy scene here. My fiance starts yelling, "Get the honey" and he makes me put my bare foot on the counter top, because I can put that leg up there,  I am that limber,  and now he can tend to my wound. Then he starts to drizzle the honey straight out of the bottle onto my toes as if he was putting ketchup on his order of french fries.  The scene is so funny that I start cracking up laughing and pee my pants.  Lol . What? I'm 53 people, a hard laugh will do that. Add to that, I am now hobbling to the bathroom  with a honey covered foot and a trail of honey behind me on the floor. 

Lol. Every time I think of him with the honey bottle squirting out onto my toes I lose it. I see french fries and ketchup. My hero.
I'm happy to say that the burn M I R A C U L O U S L Y does not have pain after the honey treatment and there is no mark at all on my tootsies.

Next time you get a burn you may want to try this remedy out first.  Pin to your Home Remedies board. Or follow my Natural board on Pinterest.


I popped over to # NatureNates to get a picture of the product we used. I pick it up at Sam's Club . 

Now check it out. They sell these little honey  minis,  "ketchup style packets", I'm crying already. No joke you could keep those packets in your first aid kit. Brilliant. Who knew? Honey for the first aid kit.

 I wonder if it will help with sunburn ? OMG #NatureNates will have a spray on honey by summer time selling  right next to the Aloe Vera. And it's all natural and it's available Organic. Hello Nature Nate's I have an idea. Whole foods? 

Stay tuned for the results of the sunburn testing.  

Can you see it now?  At the airport going on vacation, little honey mini's  hidden in your suitcase, packed amongst your bikinis, for your tropical vacay.

And I'm still laughing. 
Lol.
Hahahahaha
ROFL.




With love and gratitude,

Michele

Spicy Marinated Mixed Olives #charcuterie #antipasto

Happy New Year everyone. 
You may want to try  these spicy olives  for your New Year's Eve spread.



I grew up in a house that always kept olives around the house.
( I'm a Greek. Actually, I'm a Cyprian but my family just told me I was Greek for so long I can't really stop now.) I grew up in a family that always kept olives around the house. Sometimes they even bottled their own olives. I get that olives are not a staple in most homes but maybe this quick recipe will change things. 

Ingredients- Variety of Jarred Olives, Olive Oil, Oregano, Celery Seed, Rosemary, optional Lemon and  Garlic.



Variety of jarred olives- you can find them all over but get daring and try shopping the ethnic markets. Middle eastern, European , Lebanese , Greek, and Turkish markets are a great place to start. If you have never been to these markets you will be surprised at the plethora of supplies you will find. Don't know where they are located, try Google maps. I can find them almost anywhere I travel.
Be sure and pick up some Feta cheese while you are at the market. Chances are it will taste like no other Feta cheese you have eaten.

Find a small covered container that will keep in the refrigerator. Add the mix of olives, pour on some olive oil, be very generous here, you want to see olive oil swirl around the mix when you pick it up .  Now add your spices. I'm sure I have at least a quarter teaspoon of each spice added to the olive marinade. You can stop here or you can add a few garlic clove slices and a slice or two of lemon. Toss and refrigerate. Ready to eat now or later. We can't wait to eat the olives so we eat them immediately but they taste better when the flavors have had time to marinate.
 These are a great addition to antipasto, salads,  #charcuterie boards and of course served straight up with most meals.

I love to serve them with my cute little olive spoon. See it has a little hole in the bottom to release the excess liquid. Not sure where I picked this up but I so adore it. 


Let me know how they taste. 
These should stay fresh  refrigerated for at least a week but I'm betting you can keep these up to two weeks no problem since the olives are salty and we used plenty of olive oil.
