WINTER REMEDY: Honey Onion Cough Syrup

Via our resident/best mate naturopath, Amanda Callan, this super simple syrup recipe is a little gem for the niggling cough season. The honey extracts all of the healing properties of the onion( in particular the allium and sulphur compounds). You can also add chopped garlic, grated ginger, cinnamon, cayenne pepper if you wish )
Some people like to keep it raw and let in infuse over a week or so, some people like to cook it down within half an hr. Personally I like to put it on top of our wood fire stove and let it infuse while we sleep.
It’s easy, pungent, sweet and powerful and the kids generally love it.
2 Organic Onions
2 Cups Raw Organic Honey
Optional extras: Ginger, Garlic, Cayenne Pepper, Cinnamon
Slice the onions into half moons and place the slices into a saucepan. You can also add a few minced cloves of chopped garlic, grated ginger, tbsp of cayenne,cinnamon at this point. Cover the onion slices with the joney. Warm on a very low heat until the onions are soft and mushy and the honey tastes strongly of onion and garlic. Store in a jar in the fridge.
At the first sign of a cold, take 1/2-1 teaspoon every hour or two. If you already have a cold, take 1 tsp 3 or 4 times a day to speed up your recovery.
