Ginger Honey

Recipe by momaphet
READY IN: 11mins
YIELD: 1 cup


  • 1
    cup honey (any kind will do)
  • 2
    pieces fresh gingerroot (each about 3 inches long, sliced lengthwise in 1/4 inch slices)
  • 2 -3
    cloves, 2 cinnamon sticks, zest from a lemon, orange, yuzu (optional)


  • Pour the honey into a small saucepan and add the ginger and other spices/flavorings if using. Over medium low heat, bring the honey to a slow and low simmer. Don’t get it too hot or it will not have the right consistency. Watching the honey carefully, allow the flavors to infuse for 5-10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove the honey from the heat and allow it to cool. Transfer to a container for storage and allow it to sit for about 5 days before using. (You can try using it sooner but the flavor may not be fully infused) The honey will keep for approximately 2 weeks after the 5 day waiting period.
