Turmeric Tonic

The addition of Ginger and Turmeric to your Hot Lemon & Honey increases the health benefits and it tastes great! The golden hue of the turmeric adds visual appeal plus it is also full of antioxidants and is a powerful anti-inflammatory.

I found my lemon was bursting full of enough juice for the one cup, and if you like it more on the citrus side, ease up on the honey. I store my ginger in the freezer and just slice off and use as needed. If you are unfamiliar with Turmeric start with ½ a teaspoon.

This drink is incredibly moreish and will help ward off any winter sniffles.

Our lemons are grown by Brian and Dianne Williams – we first spotted them right across the road from our house on the way to drop the kids at school, globes of gold ripe for the picking. Brian grows lemons exclusively – they are his passion and he pours all of his skill as an orchardist (not to mention his magic homemade seaweed fertiliser) into growing the very best Meyer and Yen Ben varieties.

Lemons are used for culinary and non-culinary purposes throughout the world, primarily for their juice and zest. They make such a difference to food’s flavour and are used so often in cooking that they are considered almost indispensable. They contain a high amount of vitamin C.

Lemons store well at room temperature out of direct sunlight for at least a week, but will last much longer in the fridge – up to a month in a sealed plastic bag – where their vitamin content is undiminished.
