Honey Cough Drops
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 1 dozen drops
  • ½ c water + 3 tea bags* {steeped for 20-30 minutes then strained}
  • ¾ c honey
  1. Whisk tea and honey together.
  2. In a heavy bottomed pot, allow it to cook until it reaches 300 degrees or the hard crack stage. This can take 30 minute or longer but just be careful and patient.
  3. Pour into desired molds and allow to set.
  4. Wrap individually in wax.
*if individually sourcing herbs, the following are some of my favorite: elderberry, hyssop, horehound, slippery elm and coltsfoot. Use about 2-4 tb each and steep in the same way.
