Hyssop Cough Syrup
Licorice flavored, soothes sore throats.
• 2 tbsp dried hyssop (flower tops) or 1/3 cup fresh hyssop (chopped flowers)
• 1/4 cup water
• 1 cup honey
• 1 tsp aniseed
In a saucepan combine honey and water. Stir until the mixture is
consistency of pancake syrup. Bring slowly to a boil (over a medium
heat). Skim off any scum that rises to the surface.
Use 1-2 tbsp water to moisten the dried hyssop. Crush the aniseed.
Stir both into the honey. Cover and simmer over low heat for 30
minutes. Remove from heat, uncover, and allow to cool. While the
mixture is still a little warm, strain into a jar. When completely
cooled, screw on the lid. Should keep for 1 week.
