Remedy for chest colds

In our house as a child there were two regular recipes for fixing problems of health. One was lemon and barley and the other was linseed, licorice. Linseed and licorice was the solution to any chest colds, catarrh etc. Take 3 tablespoons of linseed and boil in two quarts of water with two licorice roots for 30 minutes. The result will be a bit slippy like okra. Strain and add lemon juice and honey to taste and drink a cup at night.
