Ingredients

  • Sea salt to taste. Increase or decrease ingredients as needed.
  • One cup of greens (dandelion, nettles etc.)
  • One or two artist conks (bear paws) cut up into small pieces.
  • One cup of barley. One onion.
  • One gallon of water.
  • Two cups of moose meat.
  • One teaspoon of Mexican spice mix.

Directions

Boil the conks until the water is reduced by half. Strain out all the conks and compost.
Bring the water to boil and add the barley. Reduce to simmer and cook until the barley is soft.
Add meat onion and greens and cool until meat falls apart. Add more water if needed.
Add spice and salt.
Turn off heat and allow mix to set five minutes.
Strain and serve.

Note: This drink will help heal any sick condition of the mouth, throat and on down. Really good for someone with dental problems, colds, internal growths. You can substitute for the grain, meat, vegies and seasonings. I like the one I gave the best. I drink it as often as I can find the conks.
