Honey And Onion

Honey And Onion Home-Made Cough Syrup

This sounds strange, I know. But it does work! Here's what you do.

-Take two large red or purple (Spanish) onions - these have a milder flavour than most white onions

-Slice them thinly, and place them in a bowl
Pour two or three tablespoonfuls of runny honey over the sliced onions

-Leave to stand for a few hours or overnight

-Pour off the resulting syrup

-Use a spoonful of the mixture whenever needed

I've heard of someone who adds whisky to this mixture. Brandy might be another option. This of course isn't essential, and I wouldn't recommend either of these for children, but adults might like to try them!
