Cough Candy | Ginger & Honey Cough Drops | Homemade Cough Remedy
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup grated ginger
1/4 cup honey
Powdered sugar or cornstarch for dusting
Combine the sugar, water, lemon juice and ginger in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.
Boil for 5 minutes on medium heat. Strain the ginger syrup and transfer the ginger juice into the saucepan.
Boil for 2 to 3 minutes.
After 2 to 3 minutes, in a small bowl of water, add a small drop of ginger syrup, and when rolled, it turns to a small ball.
Add in the honey, mix and boil until done.
Test by dropping a little syrup onto dusted wax paper or butter paper; if the syrup holds the shape, then it's ready.
Let the mixture cool slightly, then drop onto a wax paper into rounds.
Allow cooling completely, dust with powdered sugar or cornstarch.
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place.
