Honey Lemon Ginger Cough Drops
- ½ cup honey
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1 tsp freshly grated ginger root
Put ingredients into a small saucepan. Stir frequently until it becomes foamy. Be careful, because the honey can burn easily.
Remove from heat and continue to stir until the foam reduces. Put the saucepan back on the heat. Repeat this until a candy thermometer reads 300F.
Drop a bit into a glass of ice water. If the mixture forms a hard, crunchy ball, it's ready! If not, keep stirring and heating for another minute or two and try with the ice water again.
Once a hard ball forms from a drop into the ice water, let the saucepan cool until the foam has reduced.
Drizzle the candy into a candy mold or onto oiled parchment paper. Let cool at room temperature until the cough drops are hard.
Pop out of the mold or break into pieces, and store in an airtight container.
