When I was in the DR, I learned a new cold remedy that I've become fond of. Pour honey over pineapple slices (or pineapple and papaya, or pineapple and cantaloupe) and eat it. This is also commonly served as a dessert. While the pineapple here isn't anything close to as good as the pineapple over there, I had this tonight with raw clover honey I got at the farmers' market. It was sooo delicious, and it felt so good on my sad, sad throat.
