Homemade Cough Syrup - Great for Colds Too!

Okay I'll give ya this...the ingredients sound gross but it works.

1 Raw White Onion
*Raw Honey - Must be RAW! check as most store bought honey is pasteurized .

Take the onion and cut into parts. Now stab it a couple of times with a fork so the quarters have a little bit of holes. It doesn't have to be perfect so don't worry about not stabbing it the right amount of times. Place onion in a quart mason jar and fill with raw honey so that the onion is just covered. Screw lid on and leave on the back part of your stove for at least a day but probably a couple of days. You'll notice that the onion imparts it's juice into the honey. Using a strainer pour liquid into a pint mason jar and store in the fridge. To take you want to take a teaspoon 3 to 4 times a day when you're battling a cold or cough.


****Please remember not to give honey to children under 1*****
