My favorite “Bottled Sunshine” recipe is made with honey and ginger. I LOVE the flavors together and often will just pop a ginger infused clump in my mouth for pure enjoyment. Unfortunately my children don’t feel quite so happy about that spicey healing balm. To help make the recipe a little more kid friendly, and when I am in need of something FAST I make the following recipe:
Honey (preferably raw-do not feed to babies under the age of one)
Okay, there are two ways to do this-the pretty way, or the fast way.
#1 Pretty way first 🙂
slice enough lemons to fill you jar thinly (approximately two lemons)
arrange lemons in jar and
pour warmed honey over all the lemons.
Put lid on and let rest in the sunlight for a few hours. Refrigerate until need-can last up to two week. Take out occasionaly and place on the window sill so that you can admire the beauty of it.
#2 The fast way
Warm enough honey to fill your jar 2/3 of the way full, add about 1/4 of your jars worth of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Taste. If it is too sour add more honey, if it too sweet add more lemon. When satisfied with the taste transfer the mixture into the jar. Put a lid on and store up to two weeks in the fridge.
Optional: Add powdered ginger to the mix
