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!
Love this drink! With the winter still being around this was very much enjoyed.
This is what my mom used to make for me when I was sick and now I make it for my kids!!
Thank you so much for posting your great grandma's recipe!
I have been feeling horrible for about 4 days now,with a terrible sore throat and chest congestion&dry hacking cough.I was craving something hot to drink but was getting tired of tea(it's probably dehydrating me, a bit as well)I Was so grateful to find this recipe, it really soothes a sore throat and chest.The taste is wonderful too:)I know I will be drinking this as an alternative to tea even when I'm not sick.A million thank you's from my sick and tired body. Nif your great Granny was one smart lady;)
This was also made by my grandma, not just when we were sick, but to warm us up in the winter. When I got older she told me she would put a shot of whiskey in hers when she had a cold. To quote her: "It doesn't make the cold any better, but after a couple of them, you don't give a damn!" And she lived until 95, so it must have been okay! I made mine today just to warm up as it turned chilly here.
My grandma doctored us up through out our childhood with hot lemon and honey, her solution for whatever ailed you. I guess it must have worked for her, she lived till 91. Just had my son to the dr for a sore throat today and I said I have tried to get him to drink hot lemon and honey...the dr told him it was the best thing for him so now he will believe me when I say that its good for you.
My mumma used to make us this when we were coming down with a cold. I drink something like this all the time after Oil Pulling in the morning. It's a good detox for your liver. I used freshly squeezed lemon juice (always) and organic unpasteurized honey (sadly not the same as raw as it is still heated to filter) when at all possible I use raw local honey for it helps against allergies and is healthy because it has not being heated.
