Ginger, Lemon & Honey Tea

Ginger, Lemon & Honey Tea
Recipe by Dragon

Whenever I'm under the weather I always turn to my Ginger, Lemon & Honey tea to make me feel better. I drink it hot and cold. I always make a huge batch that lasts in the fridge for up to a week. Why ginger, lemon and honey? Each ingredient has medicinal qualities and when combined, they create a soothing tea that can relieve cold/flu symptoms and boost the immune system. I also think it's really delicious so this 'medicine' goes down easy. Enjoy!

Makes: 8 cups

Ingredients:

8 cups water
1/2 cup fresh ginger, peeled, chopped small
Peel of 2 lemons (just the zest not the pith), cut into thick strips
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup honey (add more or less depending on how sweet you want it)
pinch of salt

Directions:

1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pan.

2. Once it is boiling, add the ginger, lemon peel, lemon juice, honey & salt.

3. Cover it and reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes. Strain the tea.

4. Enjoy the tea immediately or let it come to room temperature then store in the fridge.

I'd want a shot of something in that.

Could I steal the poached eggs recipe to use in my blog please?

Jo, the recipe belongs to Chef Watkins, so go ahead. Just make sure you give her proper credit. :)

OK, thanks, I will.

Another question, how was the endive braised?

Dragon said...

Jo, I don't have that recipe but I noticed that it was braised in a little chicken stock.
