Make this when you feel something coming on: a scratchy throat, stuffy nose, fatigue, aches, etc. Lemon offers a nice hit of vitamin C, while the ginger and raw honey are immune boosters. You can always go old school and add a shot of whisky for a nice twist on a toddy. Simeon likes to add raw garlic to the brew – bold! I prefer to save my raw garlic for my salad dressing. I’m never without a jar of this honey in my kitchen – good stuff.
LEMON GINGER HONEY TEA
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon honey
Add grated ginger to a small two cup teapot with a fine mesh strainer. Or you may infuse a small pot of boiling water (2 cups) with the ginger and strain into mugs using a regular kitchen strainer. Stir in lemon juice and honey to taste.
