I keep a jar of cough lozenges at home for easy access when my throat becomes itchy and unbearable. Unfortunately, I ran out of candies one afternoon and couldn’t go out to get more. A quick YouTube search led me to DaveHax and his homemade cough sweets tutorial.
It’s so simple. Everything I needed was in my kitchen, and it’s probably in yours too! Some of the ingredients are sugar, water, lemon juice, honey, ginger, and ground cloves. He gave clear instructions and the video was straightforward.
As demonstrated, I mixed the ingredients then brought the mixture to a boil. Next, I let it simmer for 20 minutes to thicken the mixture. Lastly, I let it cool down before pouring into a pan lined with baking paper.
The results? Candy drops that were just right for my irritated throat – sweet, pungent, and citrusy. Try it yourself too and keep a tin box of this handy!
