Ginger Elixir

There’s a not-so-pleasant Christmas tradition that seems to come ’round each festive season – and it’s illness.

On Boxing Day I woke up with a horrid scratchy throat and a limp and weary body. This is definitely a downer after my favourite day of the year 😦

Today I whipped up a ginger elixir to help soothe my scratchy throat, and rejuvenate my doughy bones. It also turned out to be delicious, which sure doesn’t hurt.

To brew up this tasty ginger drank, boil your kettle while slicing 6 thin slices of peeled fresh ginger.

Pop the ginger slices in a large teapot, and fill with the boiled water. Allow the ginger to steep for 5+ minutes.

Add two tablespoons of maple syrup to the teapot and stir well.

Pour into a cute teacup and enjoy!
