Raw honey has any number of health benefits on its own. It can be helpful in anything from wound treatment to seasonal allergies. This cold and flu season in addition to diffusing essential oils and in light of last Christmas' nightmare making sure everyone had their flu shots, I decided to infuse some honey to aid in pesky sore throats and coughs.
I filled a pint jar about a quarter full with Cassia and Ginger chunks and dried orange peel. Then I topped it with some of the honey that we harvested this past January. I left it on the counter for two weeks, and inverted the jar a few times each day.
This morning I strained the honey and oh my what a wonderful flavor! It will be the perfect comfort in a cup of hot tea or the occasional toddy!
