Garlic Honey Cough Syrup

Ingredients:

Few bulbs of garlic
Raw local honey
Thyme
Vanilla extract

 

Directions:

Simply start by choosing a clean jar with an airtight lid.

Peel and crush or chop enough garlic to fill the jar 3/4th of the way full.

Fill the jar with garlic and add 1 teaspoon of thyme to every 2 bulbs of garlic.

Leaving room for the vanilla extract, add the honey slowly, until almost full.

Add the vanilla extract, ¼ teaspoon works great in a 16oz jar, adjust to your sized jar.

Now top off the jar with honey until nearly reaching the rim of the jar.

Seal tightly, label, and store in a cool dark place for at least 1 week.

 

Uses:

After a week has passed, you can taste the honey and notice that it will have extracted some of the flavor (and healing properties) of the garlic. You can use the syrup for a sore throat, or even eat the cloves themselves if you are feeling under the weather.
