It was a lazy Sunday when I was recollecting younger days and was reminded of my grandmother and how she used locally grown herbs and spices to churn up a cure for many ailments!
Grandma knew how to get us kids up, and off to school. As kids we loved holidays. I mean, which kid doesn’t? Any excuse not to go to school is a valid enough reason. We were no different. Coughs, colds, and stomach-aches were common enough ailments we had, or pretended to have.
Grandma wasn’t easily fooled. She always knew when we needed ‘the medicine’. That slimy concoction of mustard oil, turmeric powder, black pepper powder, ginger paste and powdered long pepper.
A dessert spoonful of it – yes, a dessert spoonful – would be shoved down our throats.
Voila! Cough, cold, throat problem, gas etc. magically vanished! But boy was it tough to swallow that! School was better. Grandma wasn’t that unkind though; she used to put in a good dose of honey too making it easier to gulp.
As a Zizira explorer, that too born and brought up in Meghalaya, something within pushed me to find out more about Long Pepper that my grandma used!
