I thought I would share with you how I made some Honey, Ginger and Lemon Syrup. I got the recipe idea from Big Family Homestead. They have a wonderful YouTube channel that I enjoy watching. They make a large jar full each time but I opted to make a smaller jar of it to see if I like it first. I now wish I had made a larger jar! They say they take about 2 tablespoons when they have a cold or cough and that it is also great to stir into tea. Well it is good and it actually makes for a really nice hot drink at night if you stir in about 4 tablespoons (or more) into a mug of hot water. I have been having some most nights and I find I sleep better when I do this too. So here is the "recipe"...
|Scrape the skin off about a 5 inch piece of ginger with a spoon. This is the easiest way I know of to peel ginger.|
|Finely mince your ginger.|
|Thinly slice and quarter an organic lemon.|
|Start layering the ginger and lemon slices.|
|Pour some honey over the layers and use a plastic knife or even a chopstick to make sure it gets down and around all the layers. If you can find local honey, use that for it's help in fighting local allergens. If not, any other honey will do.|
