People always talk about the medicinal properties of honey, but how can you put it to use? Miels (pronounced like "me-ows") are herbal infused honey preparations that are a quick, delicious way to deliver a medicinal dose of herbs that can be incorporated in your kitchen.
Benefits of honey
Honey is soothing and contains antimicrobial, antifungal, and antioxidant properties. Because honey has a fairly high sugar to water ratio, it acts as a great preservative and is quite nutritious (protein, Vitamin B2 & B6)

Immune Boosting Honey Miel Ingredients:
fresh garlic, loosely smashed
chopped ginger root
raw organic honey
Fill a jar 1/2 of the way with your freshly chopped herbs.
Pour in the honey, making sure it covers over your herbs at least by an inch. Use a spoon or chopstick to mix the honey in to remove any air bubbles.
Cover with a tight fitted lid and store for 1-2 weeks.
Shake the jar daily to help with the infusing.
Once ready, you can strain the herbs using a cheesecloth or just spoon out them out and cook them with your next meal! They will be covered with the honey, giving your food some rich flavor.
Now that your Miel is ready, you can take a spoonful a day to give you a boost of antibacterial support or to keep a sore throat at bay. The ginger combo will also help with nausea or when you're dealing with a tummy ache.
Caution with giving honey to children under 1 yr of age! Honey does naturally carry its own bacteria, which children <1 yr may not be able to process.
