MEMMM: Organic Ginger Drink

J recently made one of the tastiest drinks ever and I'd like to share it with you. First, you'll need the following:
  • 1 large piece of organic ginger root
  • 1 bottle of organic lemon juice
  • organic honey

Begin by grating the ginger. Grate the entire root. While you're grating, let about 1.5 gallons of water boil. Add the grated ginger to the just boiled water, along with about a cup of honey. Mix well and let cool (this may take about an hour). Once cooled, strain the mixture, catching the liquid in a pitcher or large jar. You can keep the grated ginger for making seitan or broth...or just toss it. Add about one cup of lemon juice. Add more honey/water/lemon juice to taste.

This stuff is delicious, easy to make and pretty cheap. One batch makes a LOT of drink. It's very very gingery, so if you don't like the hot taste of ginger, then this isn't for you!

Miss Emily didn't want to be a part of this post. She's busy keeping J company, as he appears to be down for the count with an impending flu. However, she asked that I post some eye candy. For your viewing pleasure:
