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.

NZ LEMONS

We offer two different varieties of lemons, the Meyer and the Yen Ben.

The Meyer lemon is the most commonly grown lemon in New Zealand. A soft fruit with high juice content, it is a cross between a lemon and mandarin.

Smaller than other lemons, Meyer lemons also have a smoother, thinner skin, and darker yellow pulp. 

What’s special about this variety is the sweeter taste - they pack far less of a tangy punch than other lemons. Take a whiff of a Meyer lemon and compare it to any other kind - you’ll find that Meyer lemons have a unique, slightly spicy scent.

Our first lemon growers were Brian and Dianne Williams – we first spotted them right across the road from our house - globes of gold ripe for 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 lemons.

The Yen Ben lemon is regarded as a ‘true’ lemon. 

It is lighter in colour then a Meyer and more tart in flavour. It has a smooth, thin skin, a high level of acidic juice and few pips. 

Also known as a Lisbon lemon, it originated in Queensland, Australia during the 1930s. It caught the attention of New Zealand fruit researchers in the mid 1970s, resulting in the planting of a large number of trees. 

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.
