Lemon, Honey & Ginger Syrup is perfect for soothing those winter sore throats and giving a boost to your immunity. It is quick and easy to make and a perfect gift for someone who’s not feeling well. Just add a couple of spoonfuls to a cup of hot water.
You will need:
a biggish piece of fresh ginger (about 100g)
1 cup honey
1 cup fresh lemon juice (6 medium lemons)
Slice the ginger thinly. Boil ginger with 1 cup water in a small heavy-based saucepan for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, then strain through a piece of muslin cloth (or clean kitchen multi cloth) into a jug.
Return ginger liquid to the saucepan. Add honey and lemon juice and simmer over a low heat until honey has dissolved.
Cool and pour into a sealable bottle and keep chilled.
It makes approx 600-700ml of syrup.
