Cough Syrup Recipe:
3 organic lemons (you're going to leave the peel on, so organic is important)
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and sliced thin
pinch of cayenne pepper
Slice the lemon in half and then in very thin slices. Place it in a small saucepan and muddle it until you start to see some juice. Add the sliced ginger and gently heat until it's warm all the way through. Meanwhile, heat a jar of raw honey until it pours easily, but do not bring to a boil! Remove the lemon/ginger pan off the heat and pour into a pint jar. Cover with warm honey and stir to combine. It's done!
I didn't forget the cayenne pepper, don't worry. When you use the cough syrup you can take it two ways 1) straight from the jar by the teaspoon full or 2) put 1 teaspoon into a coffee cup and pour 1 cup of hot water over it. Add a healthy pinch of cayenne pepper and stir. Drink and feel better!
Forgive my short post and lack of pictures. I have a house full of sickies and no time to devote to anything but them until they are well again. But, I knew someone out there may need this recipe as much as I do and I wanted to share.
