Winter Elixir - Turmeric Root, Ginger, Lemon & Honey

I have a sore throat and feeling like i could be getting sick, so i need to blast it away with lots of goodness. This was my first port of call.. A Winter Elixir with all the health benefit's of Turmeric root (in season AUS)  , Ginger Root , Juice of  a Lemon and spoonful of Bio Dynamic/Manuka Honey. 

So easy to do, depending on how much you want to make, you can cool it and put aside for later. 

Take the skin off the Ginger and Turmeric and cut into small pieces, you can do it roughly and squash it a bit too (like you would with garlic), put in a pan and add some boiling water, boil for 10/15 minutes. Squeeze the juice of 1 lemon and put to the side, strain the ginger and turmeric and remove all the pieces, add lemon to the mixture, pour into your cup and add a spoonful of honey of your choice, Manuka is best but i used a bio dynamic honey that we picked up from a local farm in Hunter Valley. 

Add a little cold water, do not drink boiling. Watch the ginger late at night as it is a stimulant (i was awake for hours last night after having it:))
