This heat-free recipe for manuka honey lozenges keeps the medicinal properties intact.
Turkish Coffee Pot
1/2 cupRosehip and hibiscus teachoose strong brewed tea
2 tbsppowdered gelatinor 30 ml
3tbspPRI Manuka Honey20+UMF
Brew a strong cup of rosehip and hibiscus tea. I used two tablespoons of rose hips and one tablespoon of hibiscus in my bodem but that made 2 cups of tea. I used 1/2 for this recipe, and the rest was made into iced tea. Steep for 30 minutes.
Strain the tea and add it to a small pot or Turkish coffee pot (I like the later because of the pour spout).
Sprinkle the gelatin into the pot and whisk to combine.
Set it on low heat to warm up slightly, enough to dissolve the gelatin.
When the gelatin is dissolved, use a spoon to remove the foam.
Allow to cool to just slightly warm, and mix in the manuka honey.
Immediately pour into silicone molds.
Use a spoon to remove any extra foam from the tops of the lozenges.
Put the lozenges in the fridge to set.
When firm, remove the from molds and store in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Each gummy lozenge contains 3-4g of manuka honey with the added benefits of rosehip and hibiscus. Enjoy one or two to help soothe a sore throat or as a healthy sweet treat. You can also switch up the herbal tea to try different flavours.
