I thought this being a largely agricultural state there are no doubt many home remedies that I never heard of being from NY. So, I will share one that my mother in law (a nurse) swore by and I was the benefactor of her advice via her son. It sounded awful at the time but I have passed it on and others now swear by it too.

I had a virus and was vomiting. DH went to the liquor store to get a split of champagne and poured it into a wine glass and had me sip it slowly. The champagne made me tired and the bubbles settled my stomach. Believe me, the thought was enough to make you sick but he promised me it would work and it did.

I also just was told by a native Delawarian to buy local honey and take a spoon of it daily, in tea, or cereal or how ever I wanted to and it will help with allergies. Just heard this yesterday and will go to the famers market Tuesday to get some and try it.

For congestion, a serving of chicken noodle soup with a tsp of black pepper stirred in it will bring relief.

A couple dozen raisins soaked in gin, taken every day, will ease arthritis.

A spoonful of sugar cures the hiccups.
