Warming Up Lemons

Are you a person who freezes when the temperature falls below 10C? And a real horror starts when it falls below -10C? Are you slowly getting more and more hopeless trying to warm yourself up? Well - here is a perfect idea for an evening warm up, when you don't need to bother about driving anywhere (cause we all remember, no driving after alcohol :) ). These lemons are just a perfect match with a hot tea, during a cold, winter evening :) Easy, cheap, really works :) If you are not an adult or you would like to give it to your children - prepare it without Rum.
Why didn't my grandparents tell me about it earlier? Or - why didn't I think of it earlier? Well... better late than never ;)

Before preparing:
  • Make sure your lemons are scalded precisely.
  • Lemon's skin may give a little bitter taste, so the skin can be peeled to avoid it.

  • 0,5kg of lemons (4-5 lemons, choose those with thin skin, beautifully yellow, with no darker spots)
  • 100-150g of honey
  • 20-40ml of Golden Rum (or more, depending on a personal taste)
  • 1-2 teaspoons of sugar (optionally)

  1. Prepare a clean jar.
  2. Wash lemons and scald them with hot, boiling water.
  3. Cut both edges of every lemon, throw them away.
  4. Cut lemons into slices, put inside the jar.
  5. Take a glass, put honey inside, add Rum(optionally) and stir precisely.
  6. If desired - add sugar and stir till it melts.
  7. Pour the mixture to the jar with lemons.
  8. Close the jar and leave it in peace for 2-3 days.
  9. It is good to shake the jar from time to time (for example once a day).
  10. Bon Appetit!! :)
