Add the minced ginger, garlic and turmeric on top and then repeat filling the jar. to the top. Leave it to rest in a cool spot for 24hours. Once the honey has turned into runny liquid take as needed.
The honey will begin to ferment and extract the amazing health benefits of the onions, ginger, turmeric and garlic. This process is what develops the thin liquid that can be taken several times a day when symptoms of cold & flu hit or as a great preventive through the cold & flu season. Remember to always use a wooden spoon when using medicinal, raw and organic honey. Metal has been proven to interfere with the medicinal properties of this incredible wonder of the natural world.
The honey, as a natural preservative, will ensure the ingredients dont spoil so you can simply top up with honey once the liquid runs low. You can also eat the honey drenched onions as a sweet and potent snack.
