Best winter concoction – ever!


Okay, so I know it doesn’t look like much from a distance, but what I’ve got brewing in my tall mug is saving me, this winter season.

It’s a mixture I learned about from a former co-worker, nearly 5 years ago, when she gave me a jar of it for Christmas. She said it would help me fight off infection and stay strong through the winter. Sure enough, it did.

It’s very simple. You can make it at home. I have a batch I keep refreshing every week or so, because I keep using it up.

It’s very simple — basically, you slice a (whole) lemon and ginger (thin), you pack it all into a glass jar, then you pour honey in to cover everything up. Let the jar sit for a few days, and the honey will become thin and infused with the lemon and ginger. Take a few tablespoons in a mug of hot water, and it’s a wonderful treat for a cold winter’s day.

Plus, it can help relieve colds and other infections that always seem to pop up around this time of year. I don’t want to jynx myself, but so far so good — I haven’t had anything worse than some sinus trouble, this year. And that was before I started drinking this on a regular basis.

The honey is an antiviral and a great energy boost, and with the taste of lemon and ginger, it’s really delicious.

Heaven knows, I need the boost, these days.

I’m detoxing from that “Siri” book, trying to restore balance to my frazzled system, talking myself back into the real world after that detour into damage. I’m reading research that’s got me thinking along broader lines, along more educated lines… along lines that need to be more educated.

Yeah, I need the boost.

Time for another sip of my delicious concoction.
