Another blast from my past that my kids still enjoy! My German Grandma used to make this for us if we had a cold or just needed to warm up on a cold night. I now make it for my kids and they enjoy it a lot. Please note that children under 1 year are not supposed to have honey. Enjoy!

Thank you, for some reason my mind read lime even though it says lemon so I used Lime and it is wonderful! I am sure lemon is just as good. I wanted to start drinking or eating honey every day. I am not a big tea drinker, I don't mind it but not everyday, plus I don't want to darken my teeth. I heard if you eat honey local to your area everyday you can become immune to certain pollens which will help reduce allergies! I wanted to try this approach to prevent taking medicine the rest of my life. I hope it works! Thanks!
