FINAL FOUR Cheese Madness matchup:

Ingredients for 1 serving:

  • 1-inch fresh ginger root, peeled
  • 1 cup water, boiling
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tablespoon honey (raw, unpasteurized)

Preparation

Gather the ingredients. Peel the ginger. Grate the ginger into a teapot, medium bowl, or large measuring cup. Pour 1 cup boiling water over the ginger and let it steep for 3 minutes. While the mixture is brewing, put the lemon juice and honey in a large mug. Strain the ginger tea into the mug. Stir to dissolve the honey, taste, and add more honey or lemon juice to taste. Serve hot.

Variations

  • Add a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, or cardamom at the end for a warm spice flavor.
  • Use a cinnamon stick to do the stirring to dissolve the honey.
  • A bit of tumeric tastes great and turns the tea a brilliant yellow.
  • If you like things spicy, add a dash of cayenne.
  • If the lemon flavor is too much for you, balance it out with a splash of orange juice.
  • Is it bedtime? You wouldn’t be the first person to add a shot of whiskey, bourbon, scotch, rye or dark rum to the mug
