Makes about 2 cups

2 lemons thoroughly cleaned and sliced

2 pieces of ginger about the size of your pointer finger. Slice the ginger into thin slices.

1 Cup of Honey (or as much as needed to fully cover your lemon sliced and ginger)

1 TSP Cinnamon (optional)

How to Make Winter Sore Throat Tea

  • In a 16 oz jar, add the lemon slices and the ginger. 
  • Pour the honey over top, making sure it gets into all of the cracks and crevices. I used a chopstick to maneuver the lemon slices and ginger around so that the honey could seep into all the empty spots.  Make sure that your lemon slices and ginger slices are fairly evenly distributed in your jar. 
  • I also took my chopstick and used it to press down my lemon slices and ginger to ensure they were completely covered by honey.
  • Close the jar and place it in the refrigerator.  It will become jelly-like.

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Feel free to omit the cinnamon if you prefer.

Mine seemed to jelly up in a few days. I can’t be 100% accurate, my chemo brain is struggling a little to recall when I reopened it after putting it in the fridge.
