How to make an onion, garlic, honey and lemon syrup
Now we are going to make a list of the necessary ingredients for our natural and anti-flu syrup. We will need half a cup of pure honey from bees, which does not contain sugar or additional syrups, 3 lemons, 3 garlic and purple onion (one third of the coarse onion). Also about 3 cm of ginger. If you want to get more quantity of preparation you can double the proportion of the ingredients.
For the preparation the ideal thing is to grind all the solid ingredients with a mortar and a lot of patience. Otherwise we can squeeze the garlic and lemon, but do not discard the shell and seeds ... look for an implement that helps you crush them (maybe a wooden spoon, for example). Then grate both the onion and ginger. And if you want the more technological and less effortless version you can simply pass all those ingredients through the food processor.
Once you have done this first step of the preparation you must add the honey, mix well and leave everything resting for 8 hours, so that the juices of the ingredients are released, and with them their properties. I recommend that you do it at night and the next morning you just have to strain the preparation and you will get the flu syrup.
We recommend you keep it in the fridge in a glass jar. To take it, 1 tablespoon is recommended 3 times a day when the first symptoms of the flu appear. But if you are very cold you can take up to 1 tablespoon per hour. It is also very good as a preventive, to raise defenses and fight viruses and bacteria. Remember that it is not suitable for children under one year of age due to its honey content.
