Really yummy tummy sleepy weepy drink

This recipe was given to me by the Asian owner of Rogers - the famous vegetable market on the side of the Kommetjie Road. Merle the owner, loves her customers as much as she loves her bruised beets, wobbly watermelons and smelly guavas.
“Be careful when you drink this,” she said, wagging her finger at me in her strong Indian accent. “Make sure you have nothing to do the next day but lie in bed and read a book.”
  • Heat a cup of milk
  • Add a bruised cardamom pod
  • A strand of saffro
  • Teaspoon of hone
  • Dash of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg
  • Drink it and snore your night away.
