With no obvious health issues, this is how I made my ginger tea.
- Ginger root - I washed mine rather than peeling it, then broke off a couple of the roots.
- Slice into 12-15 pieces, place it into a pan with 3 cups of water. Boil for 20 minutes over medium heat. Turn the stove off and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I strained the tea so I wouldn't have any ginger pieces in it.
- I poured my tea into a very special cup, added a small amount of honey (less than a teaspoon), a squirt of lemon juice and let it sit for a couple of minutes. I poured the leftover tea into a Ball jar and am keeping it in the refrigerator until next time.
I put the ginger back into the pan, added water almost to the top and 20-25 whole cloves. I simmered this over low heat for a few hours. The house smelled so yummy!
Love and peace,
