  • ¼ teaspoon of freshly grated horseradish

  • 1 organic lime, thinly sliced
  • ¾ cup of raw, organic honey
  • 1 handful of fresh thyme
  • 1 inch slice of fresh ginger root, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups of water


Place the lime in a Mason or other type of glass jar, and pour the honey over it. Set the jar aside. In a small pan, put the water, thyme, and ginger slices. Place over a medium flame and bring to boil, then reduce the heat. Simmer for a few minutes until the water is reduced by half, leaving you with just one cup of water. Turn off the flame and allow to cool. Strain the water into your jar with the lime and honey. Stir it together, and it is ready to go!
