  • Sieve
  • Cooking pot


  • 3 medium-sized Prekese
  • Fresh ginger
  • Lemon juice
  • Water
  • Honey


  • Wash prekese thoroughly, bruise it and break it into small pieces
  • Pour water in a cooking pot and boil it over high heat.
  • Soak the pieces of Prekese in the warm water and cover with a lid. Let the Prekese soak for about 30 minutes to an hour. NB: the longer it soaks, the more it releases all the juice and flavor from its pods.
  • Squeeze juice out of the lemon, wash ginger and crush it.
  • Add the lemon juice and crushed ginger to the soaked Prekese and mix well.
  • Let it stand for about 30 minutes. This helps the ginger to infuse well in the juice.
  • Strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove the ginger stalk.
  • Add honey to taste and stir well until it dissolves.
  • Pour the juice into a bowl or bottle and preferably place in the fridge to chill.
  • You can serve chilled on ice with slices of lemon and orange juice.
  • You can also serve it whiles hot.
