The following recipe is an excerpt from the Ebook, 100+ DIY Projects to Make with Fruit Scraps by JES. It is from the chapter “The Medicine Cabinet”, which features a selection of home remedies and food supplements for your health such as medicinal and protective oil blends, salves, tonics, booster powders, immune support products, etc.
This delicious honey will not only provide immune support during the autumn and winter season, it can be especially helpful for easing sore throats, combating the cold and flu, fevers and for breaking up congestion. High in vitamin C, an anti-histamine and an anti-inflammatory, the orange peel (which has double the amount of nutrients than the actual flesh of the orange) is the star of the show (and an ingredient most people throw away!). This powerful combination is similar to the famous “Four Thieves” blend making it quite the medicinal electuary!
- 1 tbsp. dried, powdered orange peel
- 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. ground cloves
- 1 tsp. ground allspice
- 1 c. raw honey
Mix dry ingredients together and grind until powdery (this helps to powder the peel even further for a smoother blend). Stir spices well into the honey. Let flavors infuse for 24 hours prior to using. Do not strain. The spices are meant to be consumed with the honey. Store inside a clean, airtight jar.
Note: You can adjust the ingredients according to your preferences and/or double or triple the recipe as desired.
Suggested Use: Spread on toast, stir into oatmeal, add to hot water, herbal tea, coffee or eat by the spoonful for immune support. This spice blend is especially helpful for sore throats, combating the cold and flu, fevers and for breaking up congestion.
Shelf life: For best results, use within 1 year. Store in a cool, dark area such as the pantry.
