    1.5" Ginger peeled & thinly sliced

    1 lemon remove zest carefully before juicing

    3 small star anise

    3 sticks cinnamon

    4 T. sugar

    3 T. honey

    6 cups water

    simmer for one hour (or longer to taste)

    Enjoy in your favourite mug... hot as a cold remedy or more.

    I was thinking of the Ikea recipe, Glögg,  which was such a morning comfort in holiday seasons past.

    For my cup, I simmered a few hours so it reduced to about about 2 or 3 cups in the pot... I ladeled about a 1/3 c. into my cup and filled the balance with boiling water. I think I could add a bit more honey or sugar... but with my voice gone and a cough still hanging on this batch is better without more sweetness.

    ps : What a surprise to see you. Great!

  • @Fauquet I should have called it Remedy rather than Glogg :) I have a cold and this was to help with the congestion... adding some white wine might help by adding merriment!
