Homemade Natural Cough Drops To Soothe Your Throat
- ⅓ cup water
- 1¼ cups sugar
- 1 tbsp honey
- ¼ tsp ground cloves
- ½ tsp ginger
- lemon juice
- powdered sugar
- parchment paper
1. Make sure to have all your ingredients on hand and ready to go before you start, because the process moves fast. First add the water and sugar to a saucepan over medium heat, bring to a boil, and let simmer for a few minutes.
2. Add the honey, ground cloves, ginger, and dash of lemon juice to the saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil and let cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar caramelizes and the mixture thickens slightly.
3. Remove the saucepan from the heat, let it cool, and then drizzle the sticky mixture in small blobs on a sheet of parchment paper.
4. Once the blobs have hardened and cooled, sprinkle powdered sugar on top and store the homemade cough drops in a bowl or container.
