Fermented Garlic Honey

Fermented garlic honey provides many benefits. Honey and garlic both have strong medicinal benefits on their own. Fermenting them together will amplify the benefits and it tastes pretty good.

Benefits of Fermented Garlic Honey

Raw garlic and raw honey are both helpful for immune support and can help during an acute illness along with other healthy practices. Garlic has antibacterial and antiviral properties that can help the body heal from illnesses. Honey is rich in antioxidants, yeasts, and enzymes that also promote healing and prevent cell damage. Using a combination of these two ingredients offers a wide range of benefits. A combination of honey and garlic can help with:

  • coughs
  • colds
  • skin infections
  • infections
  • sore throats

This one one thing you’ll want to have on hand for colds. It is wonderful for soothing a sore throat or cough and you can even use it topically for wounds.

Fermented Garlic Honey

Ingredients:

  • A glass jar of any size with a lid
  • Garlic cloves, peeled
  • Raw local honey (ideally not crystalized)

You can make as much or as little as you would like to have on hand. Peel each clove of garlic and fill your glass jar to about half way up. Pour honey over the garlic until it is all covered. It's a good idea to use honey that is in a relatively liquid state to get all of the garlic coated.

It’s important to use raw honey because it has all the bacteria and wild yeast that is necessary for fermentation. Gently press down with a spoon on the garlic to release some juices and mix it with the honey.

Leave the jar in a cool dark place and watch to see it start to bubble within a few days. The longer you let this ferment the better it gets, after some time the garlic starts to mellow in flavor.

If you can't find honey locally, we have some in our online store here. You can use any glass jar that has a lid – empty jars from nut butter or jam work or a canning mason jar.
