When life gives you lemons …

When life gives you lemons (especially super gorgeous ones from the farmers market!), make lemon and honey jelly lollies!

They are healthy and my son loves them! I also discovered that they are great for easing coughs.

Much to my son’s dismay, I ate the last two through the night when I was coughing and couldn’t sleep!

So we had to make another batch today!

RECIPE

*Ingredients*
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
1-2 T honey, to taste (you can even use Manuka honey for that extra healthy punch)
1 1/2 T gelatine (preferably high quality bovine gelatine by Great Lakes)

*Method*
Combine ingredients and let them sit for 5 minutes. I then heated mine in the Thermomix, 5 minutes, 60 degrees, speed one. But you can use a saucepan – just be careful not to boil it! Then pour the mixture into some moulds and place in the fridge. Ours set pretty quickly.
