    1. Karen, I remade the recipe and tweaked somewhat. Please check it out and let us know if you make it. 🙂

  1. This sounds delicious. I really like that there is no extra sugar added. I am definitely going to try it out.

  2. Hello, I found that if you zest the lemon, add the zest to the pot with the honey (then strain once cooled), it adds more lemon flavor without the sour. Thus you can reduce the honey by 25% and it still tastes great!
