Honey, Lemon and Ginger Cough Drops
1 Lemon, sliced
2 Tea Bags – I used Ginger Tea
1 cup Don Victor® – Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar
Slice the lemon.
Add to 2 cups of cold water in saucepan along with two tea bags.Bring to a boil and simmer 30 minutes.
Remove the lemon and tea bags.
Measure out 1 cup of the lemon and ginger tea water (you can discard the rest).
Return the saved cup of lemon ginger tea water back to the pot.
Add one cup Don Victor® Orange Blossom Comb Honey Globe Jar.
Using a candy thermometer cook to 260 to 280 degrees. You need to be patient with this step. It takes about 20 minutes and you need to stir the mixture constantly being careful not to let the honey mixture burn.
Once you reach the proper temperature work quickly to fill candy molds.
Allow to harden for 2 to 3 hours.
Wrap candies in waxed paper.
Yields 48 cough drops. Store in refrigerator to keep from getting overly sticky!
