Cough syrup recipe
« on: May 06, 2023, 11:25:57 am »
I came across this cough syrup recipe in a 3-Ingredient Cookbook. 
1/3 C. Honey
1/3 C. Olive Oil
1/3 C. Lemon Juice
Combine, mix, and store in a container with a tight lid.  Take 1 teaspoon for cough when needed.

Any thoughts?  Anyone have a better recipe?
I think I would refrigerate the container because of the lemon juice.

I think the honey alone would be as good.

I’m kinda with Iddee on this one.   My choice for the three ingredients would be honey, water and yeast :-)

I just don't see the need to make something that sounds like it would taste gross, when honey is just as good and doesn't taste gross.

Sounds like that would be your choice of ingredients for cough syrup among other things:t3816:
