Slippery Elm Gruel

(strengthening, soothing and healing of inflamed surfaces)

The powder made into a mucilage beverage or gruel is a bland and nutritive food for babies, the elderly, or convalescents (it possesses as much nutrition as oatmeal, and is an excellent sustaining food). The gruel is a valuable remedy in all cases of weakness, pulmonary complaints, stomach inflammation, diarrhea, lung hemorrhage, etc.

1/2 tsp. Slippery elm, powder (Ulmus fulva)
1/2 pint Raw milk**
1 tsp. Honey
dash Cinnamon or nutmeg, powdered

Make a paste out of the slippery elm and honey (press out the lumps); bring the milk to a boil and stir in the slippery elm mixture as the milk reaches the boiling point. Remove from the heat and stir 5-10 seconds, adding the cinnamon or nutmeg. If the finished product contains lumps of slippery elm run it through a blender for a few seconds.

**NOTE: We found soy milk will also work with this recipe.
