Ginger honey tea

recipe thursdayTod & I caught a springtime cold and have been coughing for weeks. When I’m ill, I tend towards medication cooked up in my kitchen from herbs and foods, rather than OTC or prescription drugs. I find that this tisane really helps to calm my cough and it tastes good, too.

Ginger Honey Tea
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1 Tblsp honey
hot water
lemon (optional)

Grate the ginger into your mug while the water boils. Spoon in some honey. Pour in boiling water and stir. Add a squeeze of lemon, if desired. Sip.

The trick to making this work is grating the ginger—it needs to be nearly juiced; minced ginger isn’t as effective. I use a flat grater with very fine teeth (not holes) that pulls the ginger fibers apart to release the juices.

Sound Delicious. And I look forward to trying out the recipe once i get rid of the last vestiges of my hay fever, that has left me with a swollen sinusitis. :-((
