Cough Lollies

It’s been a terrible year for coughs in my household. 

Continuous, deep, barky coughs.

I was given this cough drop recipe from a friend and it was fun and easy to make and worked wonders in settling and calming our coughs.

cough drops

Easy Peasy!

Taste great!

Soothe the throat & calm the cough

You will need:

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
Juice of one lemon
1 heaped tbs Manuka Honey

Combine all ingredients and boil whilst continuously stirring. 
Simmer for about 20 minutes until the mixture becomes dark and starts to thicken.

Remove from heat & let mixture cool for 5 minutes. Take care- pan and mix will be HOT!!

On a tray lined with baking paper use a spoon to drip 'lolly-sized' drops on the paper. 
Again use caution- HOT!

Leave the drops for a couple of minutes then sprinkle with icing sugar to stop them sticking.

Remove from paper and place in a container.
