Cold Remedy the Old Fashioned Way

The Northern Hemisphere is coming into winter so I thought I'd share this "I swear by" cold remedy.
I made this cold and cough drink which consists of slices of lemon, fill jar with honey to cover lemons, add about a 2inch size of ginger sliced. When you want to make a hot drink scoop out a spoonful into a cup and add hot water. Voila infused ginger, lemon and honey drink to sooth that sore throat. We are coming out of our flu season and going into spring but I drink a cup of this a day all year round to keep bugs away from me and build my immune system up for the next winter season. Store in fridge, keeps up to 3 months if there is any left hahaha. Below is what it looks like after a few weeks in the fridge. Be sure to scoop the honey from the bottom as well.

A bee keeper told me not to put it in the microwave to loosen the honey, just put the bottle in a bowl of hot water and let it melt on its own, heat takes the nutrients out of it.
