Method 1 – Juicing the Ginger First
Gather together your Organic Raw Honey and ginger root.
Peel the ginger root. You can skip this step if your ginger root is organic. Just wash it well.
Get out your juicer and juice the ginger.
Add your Organic Raw Honey into your blender . My honey is well candied here. Won’t be like this for long! Pour in the ginger juice.
Blend on high for 5 minutes.
Pour ginger honey into a jar and label it.
You can make this ginger honey as strong or as mild as you like it. In this illustration I only used a relative small amount of honey but juiced half of the ginger root. You can always add more honey to the mix if you feel it’s too strong. I like it strong… it’s yummy!
Method 2 – Blending and Straining the Ginger
Gather together honey, ginger root and a blender
Wash the ginger thoroughly is the ginger is organic and add to your blender. Leaving the skin on is ok as it contains a lot of extra nutrients.
Or… peel the ginger if you prefer.
Blend it until the ginger is finely grated,
It should come out something like this.
Scrape the side down and add the Organic Raw Honey.
I tend to add a good 1/3rd or so of a 1.5k honey pot.
Keep adding by the spoon full or simply tip it in straight from the container.
Put the lid back on your blender and whizz for about 5 minutes or so.
It should come out looking fluffy, creamy and luscious!
Strain the mixture. I often pour it through a medium sieve and then again through a very fine one.
You want to get out all those fine fibres that you see in the ginger. They are not a nice feel in your mouth. Ugh!
You may need to give it a bit of a hand with a spatula as the fibres tend to clog up in the strainer.
When finished, just discard the fibres.
Now you have yourself a nice jar of ginger honey, made in your very own kitchen by your very own self! Proud you should be!
You can use it in many ways including pouring over steamed carrots, or ice-cream, or in your morning Lemon and Ginger Honey Tea!
I tend to give it a little stir each time I use it to combine the fluff from the top through the honey. That way it stays wonderful right to the very end.
Once you have made this for yourself, you won’t want to ever be without it.
Either one of these ginger flavored honey recipes is good. It’s just a matter of which way suits you best. Feel free to try both ways as they are both excellent. Don’t forget to come back and tell me how you went will you? Have you got any great ideas you’d like to share with us? Have you tried to mix other flavors into honey? If so, what? Come on… share in the comments area as I’d love to hear from you.
