The new season started, the kids are back to school and now there is less time spend outdoors after work and during lunches than during the summer. That means that we will stay in close rooms with poor ventilation and that gives sickness.
Because of that, we have prepared for you one amazing sickness remedy. Honey with ginger.
This is an amazing remedy for flu and colds, and also it is soothing on the throat, has some good leftovers and tastes really delicious.
The honey has soothing properties for itchy, sore or scratchy throats, and also it is antibacterial. The honey can build up tolerance to the pollen and can remove the mild allergy symptoms. That is because the honey has trace amounts of the pollen and can help the body to make antibodies to the pollen. This lowers the amount of histamine produced by your body, and that relieves your allergies. The honey is full of antioxidants that can help you to fight Alzheimer’s and aging. If you take the honey 30 minutes before going to bed, it will reduce your nighttime coughing. The honey stimulates the serotonin and your body converts it into melatonin, while the melatonin can help you sleep.
The ginger is a very powerful antioxidant, can solve many problems with arthritis. It is excellent for all motion sickness, like sea, air or land. It protects against the colorectal cancer and it helps with the nausea in pregnancy.
Ginger with Honey
- 2 cups of honey
- Candy thermometer
- Sterilized containers that have lids (salad dressing containers or mason jars…)
- A heat safe bowl or a double boiler and a pot
- 1 ½ inches of ginger root, or 2 tbsp dried ginger
- Peel and slice the ginger. Slice it into thin slices or shred it.
- Put the honey on the top of the boiler with water.
- Add the ginger and bring the water to boil.
- Check out the honey with the thermometer.
- Bring the honey to a temperature of 185° and you should keep that heat for about 10 minutes.
- Remove it from the heat, and let it like that for 10 minutes.
- Strain out the ginger and then pour it into the containers.
- If you slice the ginger thinly, you can keep the ginger.
If you slice the ginger, you can leave a little of the honey with the ginger, because it preserves it and the longer you leave the honey with the ginger, the more infused your ginger becomes. Also, you can preserve a shredded ginger and use it for some other recipes.
