A Natural Option To Store-Bought Cough Drops: Your All-Natural Remedy Recipe Right Here

Here is the complementary recipe that I have for you from this week’s blog post. The recipe is for a natural cough remedy (free of drug store medications).

Throat Soothing Honey Lemon Ginger Cough Drops Recipe

What You Need – naturalcoughremedy2

  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp freshly grated ginger root



Putting It Together –

  1. Put ingredients into a small saucepan.
  2. Stir frequently until it becomes foamy. Be careful because the honey can burn easily.
  3. Remove from heat and continue to stir until the foam reduces.
  4. Put the saucepan back on the heat.
  5. Repeat this until a candy thermometer reads 300F.
  6. Drop a bit into a glass of ice water. If the mixture forms a hard, crunchy ball, it’s ready! If not, keep stirring and heating for another minute or two and try with the ice water again.
  7. Once a hard ball forms from a drop into the ice water, let the saucepan cool until the foam has reduced.
  8. Drizzle the candy into a candy mold or onto oiled parchment paper.
  9. Let cool at room temperature until the cough drops are hard.
  10. Pop out of the mold or break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.

Tip: You can sprinkle them with vitamin C powder to keep them from sticking together.
