A few weeks ago I had the flu and I must have drank gallons of this delicious honey lemon concoction. The honey coats your throat and the lemon is an extra boost of vitamin C to help you get better faster! My great-grandma always used to make this honey lemon drink for us when we were kids. It was sweet and lemony and always made me feel better! My version premixes the honey and lemon which turns into a sort of marmalade which you can then pour boiling water over for a nice cup of honey lemon 'tea'.
Honey Lemon "Tea"
1 Lemon cut into thin slices
Put the slices of lemon in the jar and fill to the top with honey. I used creamed honey and had to heat the honey over low heat to make it pourable. (The honey helps preserve the lemon! Pretty cool.) The lemon will eventually break down and the mixture will turn into a sort of marmalade. As the 'marmalade' runs low you can add extra honey and lemons whenever you have them on hand.
To make the tea pour boiling water over 1 tablespoon of the marmalade. (You may want more or less depending on your taste. I like a really strong cup!)
Variation: Try adding ginger for a spicier version!
