Cold season? These recipes with honey will help to get you back on your feet.

Ginger honey drink
Peel fresh ginger, chop up finely and let it brew with fennel tea. Allow to cool until lukewarm and then sip with a spoonful of Langnese honey.

Onion drink
Peel and slice some large onions. Simmer them in 1 litre of water for 1 hour, pass the water through a sieve and let it cool to below 40°C. Add 250 g of honey. Slowly drink 1 liqueur glass full every hour.

Radish swig
Scoop out of the centre of 1 large Spanish black radish. Finely grate the inside, mix with honey, put it back into the radish and let it rest. The honey will draw out the juice. Every 2 to 3 hours, take one tablespoon of the grated mixture and let it dissolve in your mouth. Prepare fresh every day.

For sore throats


Honey gargle
Several times per day, gargle with a mixture of warm water and Langnese honey and spit it out. Simply dissolve a tablespoon of honey in a glass of warm water.

Honey-sweet herb mixture

Mix 2 parts of dried sage leaves with 1 part each of camomile and thyme. Stir 1 heaped teaspoon of the herb mixture into a glass of hot water, let it brew for 10 minutes and pour through a strainer. Mix the water with 1 to 2 tablespoons of honey and the juice of one lemon. Gargle by the spoonful and then swallow.
