This time of year brings citrus, root vegetables, holiday goodness, and….the flu. While I was struggling to get over the crud, my friend Sally gave me this wonderful recipe. (And the beautiful lemons came from our friends Lauren & Jason.) This tea has helped soothe both my cough and my soul. Who needs chicken soup when you have lemon tea?

Ingredients:

1 large Meyer lemon (or 2 regular lemons)
1 one-inch piece of ginger, peeled and chopped
10 c water
1 T honey

Instructions:

Add the water to a stock pot. Cut the washed lemon in quarters and take out the seeds. Squeeze the juice in the water. Add the rinds to the water, along with the ginger. Bring to a boil, then simmer for about 20 minutes. The tea can be kept in the fridge and heated whenever necessary.
