Last week I promised I would begin sharing some of my favorite all-natural regimines. Whenever I begin to feel things are a bit, "off", I resort to some of my "go-to" chemical-free, beautifully derived tonics, elixirs, and syrups. I have found these natural options work great and have zero side effects.
Today, I am going to share my fermented honey-garlic miracle syrup. It is super easy to prepare using only two ingredients, fresh, local honey, and garlic cloves. An airtight glass jar will also be needed. Then, just a dark cabinet for a few weeks and, voila - Fermented Garlic Honey Goodness!
Before I share the instructions, let's discuss some of the benefits of this syrup:
🐝 IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOST - Fermented honey and garlic provide a powerful antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-microbial elixir.
🐝 DIGESTION - Fermented honey and garlic provide a powerful antioxidant, anti-viral, and anti-microbial elixir.
🐝 BLOOD PRESSURE - Garlic has long been known to reduce blood pressure naturally. The honey-garlic also has been shown to help decrease cholesterol as well.
🐝 ANTI-INFLAMMATORY - The honey-garlic combination also is known for its excellent help with anti-inflammatory conditions in the body such as arthritis.
🐝 BRAIN HEALTH - With the rise in dementia and other aging, brain issues, utilizing these natural ingredients. Both are powerful antioxidants that bind to the toxins that damage the brain and help us get them out of our bodies.
EASY FERMENTED GARLIC-HONEY RECIPE:
20+ cloves of garlic - Locally derived, raw & unadulterated honey - clean, glass jar.
Peel the cloves of garlic (this is the longest part of the process), place them in a jar, and cover them completely with honey. Place the jar in a dark cabinet for 2-3 weeks. Once fermented, you are ready to use this wonderful elixir.
Take a spoonful daily.
Use to make delicious salad dressings.
Baste onto chicken, fish, meat, and pork.
This is a great time of year to make your fermented honey-garlic. When you begin to feel a sore throat coming on, take a spoonful of this golden syrup several times a day. Our family has found it to be a great way to ward off the yucky bugs that can creep up. Enjoy!
