HOW-TO-TUESDAY Cough Syrup

How To yellow


I am so excited to share this with you. The recipe comes from one of my herbal mentors--Rosemary Gladstar. I met her years ago at an herbal conference. She is a wonderful, sweet lady and an excellent herbalist.

Autumn is here and with it weather ups and downs. It's the perfect season to get that tickly sensation in your throat that signals the onset of something worse.

OTC cough medicines are laden with all kinds of things I would rather avoid--especially for children. This simple remedy is tasty, effective, inexpensive and you don't have to run to the pharmacy or grocers. You can make it from items already in your kitchen.

Gather ingredients: Large onion, honey.
Wow, that WAS easy.

Slice onion in half; slice into half moons.

Put into saucpan.

Cover with honey.

Heat over low until onions are soft.

DONE!

Take by spoonfuls as needed.

Strain or not, it's up to you. If you leave the onions in they will continue to release their oniony goodness into the honey. Transfer to jar and store in frig.

You can alter this recipe by adding other stuff in your kitchen such as garlic and cayenne.

Rosemary's books are available in my MUST HAVE BOOKS in the right hand column.
