carrageen cold remedy

Makes around 15 drinks


10g dried carrageen moss

700ml cold water

1 x 3cm piece of fresh ginger, grated

3 tbsp honey

Juice of 1 lemon


To serve:

Irish whiskey (optional)


  1. Place the carrageen moss and water in a saucepan and allow to soak for 30 minutes.
  2. Cover the pan and slowly bring to a boil over a medium heat. Allow to simmer gently for 30 minutes, adding the grated ginger halfway through.
  3. Strain the liquid through a sieve into a jug. The carrageen will have released a gel; push this through the sieve with the back of a wooden spoon to get as much through as possible. Discard the contents of the sieve.
  4. Stir in the honey and allow to cool. Stir in the lemon juice, then cover and store in the fridge until ready to use.
  5. To make a soothing drink, place 2-3 tablespoons of the carrageen in a mug. Add a splash of whiskey if desired. Top up with boiling water and stir until well combined.
