      I made this when a rather nasty cold was going around. I made a big pot and drank this hot out of coffee mugs. I took some over to my sisters house too. We all loved it, I really think it helped with all of our sickness. It certainly helped my sore throat. Thank you thank you thank you! This is my new 'chicken noodle soup'.
