Winter is the perfect time to make this amazing ginger remedy–amazing because it can help boost your immunity, soothe sore throats, clear congesting, inspire sweating which in some health philosophies is said to speed up recovery from colds and congestion, and more than that, tastes fantastic!
Into a good blender, drop
- 2 inches fresh ginger, scrubbed and cut into smaller pieces
- juice from 1/2 fresh lemon
- 1-2 tablespoons raw local honey
- 1.5 cups hot water
- optional: dash cayenne
Blend on high for 1-2 minutes. Strain through tea strainer into mug. I recommend drinking 1/2 cup 2-3x day to help your body fight off a cold. Feel better quickly!
Madura Farms now has fresh organic ginger root available and the market also carries raw local honey from Guy’s Apiaries. They are both at the market every Saturday!
