Our family has been living abroad in Tel Aviv, Israel for the past 7 months, but we move back to the states in two days! It’s hard to believe our time has come to a close. Our apartment is down the block from the largest open air market in the city, which has been a great source of inspiration for seasonal eating. I’ve spent many hours in our little galley kitchen, cooking new foods and coming up with recipes to bring home as a remembrance of our time here. One of those is my take on an Israeli staple: Mint Lemonade. I make mine with raw honey and add mint ice cubes. It’s perfect for the summer days ahead!

While I love this recipe, there is one important thing I would change. The beauty of raw, local honey is the fact that it is not destroyed with heat. While it’s a great idea to boil (filtered) water for the mint leaves, I would not add the honey until the water was at room temperature. Yes, it will take more time to blend. But you will still enjoy all the health benefits of the honey that we strangely pay more for to remain unprocessed.
