Please note: I like to keep my Garlic Honey in the refrigerator, since the bacteria that cause botulism can grow in foods that are not canned properly. Do NOT feed honey to babies less than 1 year old. Honey may contain the spores that can produce botulism bacteria in infants under 1 year of age. A child’s serving size is quite different than an adult’s serving size, so please check with Clark’s Rule or Dr. Young’s Dosage table before giving your children garlic honey. Some herbs are not recommended for people with certain illnesses and/or diseases, pregnant women, breastfeeding women and people who take certain medications, so please consult with your holistic health care provider before trying this recipe.
