A few days ago, my neighbor’s girl dropped by in the late afternoon. We made some simple noodles together. Her mum had been unwell for a few weeks. So it was nice for the keen 11 year old to learn to cook a meal for the family.
When she popped over again today, she brought me a few lemons from their trees. So I made this simple, gentle and aromatic tea with the lemons – perfect to enjoy on a rainy autumn afternoon.
Method is as follows:
(Serve 1 as a low FODMAP drink)
- 2 sticks of cinnamon / cinnamon bark
- 1/4 lemon, sliced
- 10-15g ginger, sliced
- 2 tsp raw sugar
- 1.5 cup of water
- In a sauce pan, bring cinnamon, ginger and water to boil, simmer for 5 minutes; add sugar and lemon; remove the pan from the stove.
- Leave the drink in the sauce pan to simmer for another 5 minutes; serve warm or lightly chilled.
