Taiwanese Ginger Honey Recipe

IMG_8471

Every time I came over my Taiwanese friend Ruby’s house, she would serve tea or even just plain water in the mornings with a tablespoon of this ginger honey mixture in it. To be consumed in the mornings, ginger honey is great for the health as well as for dieting. Ruby’s sister Jaslyn shared with me this wonderful recipe while she was visiting us. The amount of the ingredients depends on your taste: if you prefer a stronger, spicier mix, add more ginger, if you have a sweet tooth, add more honey, or more lemon if you like lemon.

Ingredients:
