  3. Cut the 2 ends off the lemon, then slice in half and then in slices. Add to the jar
  4. Add 2 tbsp of unpasteurized honey to the jar.
  5. Boil a large pot of water. Add to the mason jar. Give a good stir and let cool on the counter till completely cool. Put the lid on it and will last for 1 week in the fridge.

 

When enjoying it add ¼ to ½ a cup of the elixir, then top up the cup with boiling water. Enjoy!

Notes: 

  • If you find there is not enough ginger kick, add more ginger next time you make it
  • If you find it is not sweet enough for you, add more honey next time you make it
