With the fluctuating weather thats been going on, you never know when the flu might kick in. And lets face it, no one likes having the sniffles. Such instances may call for all-natural cold and flu remedy and we recommend this good old lemon, ginger and honey recipe. You can store it in the fridge just in case you feel like you’re about to come down with something. Just scoop out a few tablespoons of honey, add lemon then hot water and enjoy it with a delicious and soothing tea.
2 lemons (thoroughly cleaned)
2 piece of fresh ginger (about the size of your pointer and middle finger)
12 oz mason jar
1. Slice lemons and ginger.
2. Place the lemon and ginger slices in the mason jar, alternating layers of each.
3. Slowly, pour honey over the lemon and ginger. Allow the honey to sink down and around the lemon and ginger slices. Fill jar to the top with honey and seal tightly.
4. Store in the refrigerator. Over time, the mixture will start to turn into a loose jelly.
5. When you are in need of some soothing tea, scoop 2-3 tablespoons into a mug full of hot water—be sure to scoop whole pieces of ginger and lemon. Allow to steep for 3-4 minutes and sip away.
