1 cup honey
2 lemons, sliced
1 inch fresh ginger, sliced
500ml jar with lid
Layer the lemon, ginger and honey in the jar. Place 2-3 slices of lemon in the jar, added a couple of pieces of ginger and then a few spoonfuls of honey. Repeat until you have used all the produce and the jar is full.
Screw the lid on tightly and put in the fridge for at least 12 hours before using to allow all the ingredients to combine and the flavours to infuse.
When you need 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.
It is normal for the lemon juice and the honey to separate in the jar. The honey will settle at the bottom and you will get a delicious lemon and ginger juice towards the top.
If that happens you can simply take a spoon of the juice and a spoon of the honey from the jar each time you use it.
The mixture will keep in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to 2 months.
