Winter Sore Throat Tea Base

Winter Sore Throat "Tea"
(This is not my own recipe.  This recipe was copied and shared on Facebook too many times to know who the original author is.)
I will be experimenting with this recipe this weekend and will let you know if the measurements of the ingredients work out.

Make sure you have some of this ready...great recipe for sore throats and chest colds.  It makes about 2 cups.

  • 2 lemons thoroughly cleaned and sliced
  • 2 piece of ginger about the size of your pointer and middle finger together sliced into coin size pieces
  • Honey (about 1 cup-maybe more)
In a 12-16 oz. jar combine lemon slices and sliced ginger. Pour honey (organic is best) over it slowly. This may take a little time to let the honey sink down and around the lemon and ginger slices. Make sure when the honey has filled in all the voids, there is enough to cover the top of the lemon slices. Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a "jelly". To serve: Spoon jelly into mug and pour boiling water over it. Store in fridge 2-3 months.
