When the OH awoke and declared he felt dreadful, it seemed like the perfect time to try out this new range of Manuka Honey from the New Zealand Honey Co. To quote from their marketing material…
“New Zealand Honey Co, producers of 100% pure, authentic honey, has perked up its premium Manuka honey with the addition of lemon and root ginger creating two new exciting honey options that are great for cooking with and must-have’s on anyone’s shopping list this year.
So much more than a sugary sweetener, the new Manuka Honey with Lemon and Manuka Honey with Root Ginger not only taste great but are brilliant functional foods, which provide a number of health benefits, helping you to put a spring in your step! The Manuka Honey with Lemon, with its delicious zesty zing, is packed full of Vitamin C and adds a whole new element to the honey – making it the perfect ingredient for salads and desserts. Smooth and fresh, the honey is also great when added to smoothies and juices, for an extra healing health kick!
Ginger, a store cupboard essential for any food lover - has been used to create New Zealand Honey Co’s deliciously different Manuka Honey and Ginger.”
I simply added a heaped teaspoon of each of the honeys, a splash or orange juice and squeeze of lemon to a cup of hot water (note: in his favourite cup…I think this might have made all the difference!). After tasting simply a spoonful of the honey, the OH declared he felt better already, but enjoyed the drink nonetheless! I think this will definitely become a favourite in our house during times of colds and sore throats!
On an entirely different note, I’m hoping to use the ginger honey next in a Cajun honey chicken recipe served with spinach and mash. I’ll let you know how I get on.
Both honeys have a RRP of £9.99 and are available from Morrisons. For further information on New Zealand Honey Company and honeys visit www.newzealandhoneyco.com .
