A remedy my mama used to make for us to nourish our bodies and warm our hearts. Holding a cup of warm lemon, honey & ginger is almost like a hug.
•fresh lemons, any sort will do. At least 1 per person or more if you like it tangy.
•honey, about 1-2 teaspoons each. Please use raw and local honey - it's better for your body as it still contains all the real nutrients (not stripped bare like from the supermarket), and supports a local farmer and his bees.
•a small knob of fresh ginger.
•some fresh or dried lemongrass (optional).
Squeeze the lemon into a cup, smash the ginger to release the flavour and add along with the cut lemongrass. Pour over not-quite boiling water and add honey to taste.
Cosy up with your favourite handknit or crochet blankie and snuggles with your little ones.
