Those who followed Kuroko no Basket's series saw several ways for athletes to improve their physique through training and nutrition. Lemon to honey serves to replenish energy and contains vitamin C and it is very refreshing to eat it cold.
Preparation is super simple and quick. The time is to wait a few days for the lemon to become sweet. You can eat the lemon, or use the honey and the squeezed lemon to make lemonade. If you use sparkling water, it becomes a great natural soda! Or even use it to flavor cakes and cookies. As a marinade, these lemons are valid for 3 months in the refrigerator.
About lemons: Sicilian lemons were used in the anime, which are softer and more aromatic. If you don't have this type of lemon in your city, you can substitute tahiti / white lemon (the one with a green peel) + pear or Bahia orange. I do not recommend making this marinade of Tahitian lemon only, as it is extremely acidic and can compromise the flavor. Then balance between lemon and orange.
You will need:
- 1 jar of jam boiled in filtered water;
- 3 to 4 Sicilian lemons;
- 500 ml of honey;
Note: nothing prevents you from making a mixture between various types of oranges and lemons :)
How to make lemon:
- Cut the lemons into thin slices. Remove the seeds;
- Place the slices inside the pot and intercalate with the honey, until the lemons are covered;
- Place the pot in a cool, dark place for 3 days;
Once ready, keep the pot in the refrigerator. Enjoy the summer 🙂
PS: Do you have a cold? Put grated ginger in this marinade. In addition to getting better, you won't be sick for a long time. Thanks to comments and shares, we also recommend:
