  • Hi, you can add ‘flavours’ to honey. I often add lemon or orange rind or ginger into a standard jar of honey, leave for a few weeks and use liberally! Also little jars with a nice tag makes a great gift.

  • Ginger Honey I found ginger honey at my hotel breakfast buffet in Dubai early last year I was unwell so used it on my crepe to settle my stomach and boy it worked! Only no where in the UK seems to make this. The hotel made it themselves.
