Homesteading idea: Honey-lemon-and-ginger tea

From the Homesteading/Survivalism Facebook page, here’s a remedy – a kind of “tea” – for that winter sore throat.

Winter sore throat tea, by Homesteading/Survivalism. Yum.

How to make:

In a jar, combine lemon slices, organic honey and sliced ginger. Close jar and put it in the fridge, it will form into a “jelly”. To serve: Spoon jelly into mug and pour boiling water over it. Store in fridge 2-3 months.

We may not have winter in my side of the planet but this tea sure looks (and tastes) great. You can never go wrong with honey and lemon. And with the ginger,  you can say bye-bye to your sore throat as soon as you finish a mug in one swig.  So to my friends out there in cold countries, this one’s for you.

I am a huge fan of the Homesteading/Survivalism site and I “liked” their Facebook Page so in order not to miss  regular ideas and inspirations they share for sustainable and self-sufficient living. I believe in living off the grid and off the fat of the land. I may sound dreamy and romanticize it a bit but I know it requires a lot of hard work and major adjustment in lifestyle and mindset. I like the idea of growing my own food, make my own stuff. Well, there is no better time to begin living like this but now.  We are slowly easing our way into this lifestyle.
