Here’s my general recipe if you’d like to make your own.
- Start with a quart jar
- Add 1″ layer of raw gum Arabic resin
- Fill to curve of neck with boiled water
- Agitate to dissolve the resin once the water cools enough to handle
In another container, add 1/10 volume with honey, fill the rest with your gum Arabic solution.
Add 1-2 drops of clove or cinnamon essential oil.
If you make enough volume and use heat sealing lids, you can preserve them in a water bath just as you would can jelly or preserves.
