Honey Lime and Ginger Immune Booster

Honey Lime and Ginger Immune Booster

Posted by Sharona Lomberg on

We love it when we have wonderful refreshing rains during summer in Kona. However, fluctuating heat and cold may cause people to feel poorly. Many people catch a cold in the middle of the summer,  as have many of my friends. As luck would have it, my neighbor dropped off a bag of homegrown limes on my front doorstep, which inspired me to make this delicious concentrate to boost one's immune system. I like to add it to bubbly water for a refreshing spritzer. It also makes for a beneficial tea when added to hot water. Just so you know, this is a potent elixir. It has a slightly bitter taste from the lime peels. Save the jar in your refrigerator and use regularly.

Honey Lime and Ginger Concentrate

Ingredients :

  • 2 limes, preferably organic
  • 2 inches fresh ginger, peeled and thinly sliced
  • Big Island Bees Organic Wilelaiki honey
  • Bubbly water (or hot water for making into a tea)


      1. Slice the limes into thin circles.
      2. Peel the ginger and slice into thin slivers.
      3. Alternate the sliced limes and ginger into a glass jar with a large opening.
      4. Pour the Organic Wilelaiki honey on top of the slices so it seeps under and over , covering all of the mixture.
      5. Cover the jar with a lid and place in the refrigerator.
      6. Scoop a teaspoon or more to taste into a cup of hot or bubbly water.
