You’ll want to keep this item in your pantry all year long, an elixir to back-up your immunity efforts.
Adapted from Susun Weed’s recipe for Garlic Honey.
- Raw honey to fill your jar (approximately ½ cup)
- 3 heads of garlic, individual cloves separated, but not fully peeled
Gently break open the heads of garlic. There’s no need to peel the individual cloves, but do remove the outermost papery layer that keeps the cloves in the bulb. Fill a small jar with the unpeeled garlic cloves and cover with raw honey. Seal your jar, mark it with the date, and store. In just a few days, the garlic honey will be ready for eating. Over time the honey and the garlic cloves will darken and become more potent. Some people store garlic honey in the refrigerator, but honey at room temperature should be just fine.
Swallow a spoonful of the honey, or spread it on warm toast. Babies under one year should never have honey.”
