My mother’s recipe for hot lemon drink for treating colds and sore throats.
Wash lemons and slice with skin intact.
Put in pot and cover with water.
Bring to boil, add honey to taste (depends on how sour lemons are and how sweet you like the drink).
Simmer a few minutes.
Remove from heat, strain and serve.
Evenif you’re not drinking it immediately it’s important to strain the drink. It goes bitter if the lemon is left in it when it cools.
In spite of my tartan genes I haven’t acquired a taste for whisky but those who have recommend adding a wee dram.
