Honey Lemon Recipe

24 August 2009

A soothing Honey Lemon recipe as a remedy for sore throats.

Alex gave me an idea to post up the "Perfect" Honey Lemon recipe, but perfect or not is always dependant on your own preference. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Here's my recipe anyway.

This serving is for one cup, if you're gonna make a big jug of it, vary the amounts by ratio.

1 Cup of Water
4 teaspoons of Honey
2 teaspoons of Lemon Juice

1. Honey doesn't mix in water well, so we need heat. Either you get some hot water or just pour normal temperature water, put in the honey and heat it up later on in a microwave or something.
2. Put in your lemon juice. (If you want you can drop in a slice of lemon as well)
3. Stir, stir, stir.

Honey is denser than water, if you don't mix it well in water using heat, all the honey is going to settle to the bottom, that's the stupid thing that I always get in restaurants.

You can either add less or more honey for its sweetness, or add less honey, include a teaspoon of sugar. It all depends on your taste, experiment. You can also vary the amount of lemon juice for the lemon flavour. This seems to be the one for me.

Health Warning!
Do not allow children under 2 years of age to consume anything that has honey to be safe! Honey contains clostridium botulinium spores. This bacteria can produce toxins in children, mainly infants less than 12 months due to the low acidity in the digestive system.

Ahh, another post to remind ourselves of our love.
