Lemon Ginger Paste

Updated: Mar 28

A few weeks ago my mother handed me a jar of home-made lemony goo. Fully aware of the potent antioxidant and vitamin content of the goo's 3 ingredients (lemon, ginger, and honey), I had no reason to decline. So ever since, I've been using a bit here, a bit there, and quite frankly, a bit everywhere. I later named it all-purpose, lemony goo. Thanks mom.


Recipe

yield: about 1 cup


Ingredients

4 lemons, quartered (seeds removed as much as possible)

2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and roughly chopped

3/4 cup honey

*This blend is a good source of vitamin C, potassium, manganese, and vitamin B6. It also contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds, and may assist in relieving gastrointestinal distress such as nausea and upset stomach.
