Citrus may be more commonly thought of as a food than as an herb, but from peel to pulp to seeds, citrus bursts with powerful gifts. Whether you’re looking for a tasty way to enhance digestion, soothe a sore throat, or just enjoy a delicious drink, we’ve got you covered in this episode with Emily Han. (And those are just a few of the ways Emily shares to work with citrus!)
You’ll also receive access to Emily’s wonderful Citrus Honey Tea recipe. This easy-to-make recipe stays fresh for up to a year in the refrigerator. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy the gifts of citrus months after prime citrus season is past…or any time you’re in the mood for a yummy hot or cold drink.
By the end of this episode, you’ll know:
► Are there any safety concerns when selecting your citrus?
► Does it matter what citrus species you work with?
► How can citrus help with digestion?
► How can you grow your own citrus if you live in a cold climate?
