I simply love lemons as they not only are delicious but healthy as well. Here is a recipe for a homemade cough syrup using lemons and honey.
- Cut up 2 lemons, drop them in a small mason jar and pour honey over them until it fills about 1/3 of the jar.
- You can immediately see the juice from the lemon being drawn out by the honey and the two swirling together.
- Let it sit in the fridge, over the next couple of months and the lemon will darken and the mixture will thicken.
- The peels and pulp will break down as well and leave behind a golden, lumpy marmalade that you can scoop into a cup and poor piping hot water over.
