CURE FOR A BLEEDING LUNG

FROM MY AUNT I REMEMBER.
SHE TOLD ME THIS WHEN I WAS WORKING ON HER FARM.
WHEN SHE WAS A LITTLE GIRL, SHE HAD A BAD COLD
AND GOT A BROKEN PART IN HER LUNG.
TO FIX UP THE BLEEDING, YOU GET BLACK ROOTS
FROM SOMETHING THAT LOOKS ON THE TOP
LIKE PARSLEY.
THIS BLACK ROOT, YOU CLEAN OFF THE BLACK SKIN
THEN CUT IT IN LITTLE PIECES.
THEN COOK THE AMOUNT 2 CUPS BLACK ROOT, 1 CUP HONEY,
ONE CUP UNSALTED BUTTER UNTIL IT IS TENDER.
THEN EVERY DAY 2 TABLESPOONS MORNING AND EVENING.
THIS HELPS THE BLEEDING NOT TO COME SO FAST.

Submitter comment: TOLD TO ME IN MY HOME BY MY NEIGHBOR
WHO WAS BORN AND RAISED IN RURAL GERMANY.

Where learned: MICHIGAN ; BLOOMFIELD HILLS
