Ingredients


Materials

  • - pan for melting sugar
  • - wooden spoon

Preparation

  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 1In the first step, prepare ~ 100ml of concentrated tea from one or more of the following plants: chamomile, basil, sage, thyme, mint, lemon. Put the plants in a container, add boiled water and leave to infuse for 3 minutes.
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 2Melt the brown sugar together with the strained tea. Very important: let it to melt over low heat and mix it constantly! Sugar can burn very easily and completely change the taste. The total time can vary between 30 minutes and 1 hour. Depending on this and certain ingredients, the candies will come out stronger or softer.
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 3After about 10 minutes, prepare the juice from half a lemon and add it to the composition. Mix almost continuously with a wooden spoon and keep on low heat.
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 4For the last 3 minutes (the sugar is already melted) add in the composition the spices: ginger, turmeric, nutmeg, cloves (cloves crushed in a mortar).
    The quantities can vary depending on the taste of each.
    Mix continuously!
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 5When all the ingredients have been homogenized (after 3 minutes), turn off the heat and leave to cool slightly. The composition should be liquid, to flow easily from the spoon (a thin syrup).
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 6When the composition has cooled slightly, but still liquid (like a thin syrup), add the essential oils and, if you have, and the propolis tincture. Mix continuously!
    Pay attention to the amounts of essential oils: if you put too many drops, the candies may caramelize (not stay strong). Therefore, I recommend combining several oils in a container and from there put no more than 5 drops.
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 7Add the last ingredient (perhaps the most important): hiney was cap (or honeycomb). It is good to delay this step as much as possible, in order to slightly cool the composition, but at the same time not to harden ( the idea is not to add the cap at very high temperatures and to lose its properties ).
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 8In the end, the composition should have the consistency of a dense syrup and still flow easily from the spoon.
  • Drops for sore throat and cough with ginger, essential oils and other natural ingredients - Preparation step 9Drop (candy) formation:
    - Method 1: on a sheet of waxed paper add the composition, still liquid, with the help of a wooden spoons, by dripping.
    After a few minutes, when the drops hardened, they are powdered with sugar and stored in a container, for not melting.
    - Method 2: we also use a sheet of waxed paper / parchment, placed on a tray. The composition is poured evenly over the whole sheet in a layer of about 3mm. Various sizes can be formed with a knife by light but not total cuts. When it has cooled and hardened completely, the forms break by hand and are individually wrapped in food foil.
    - Method 3: on a plate put powdered sugar in a layer of about 5 mm, form small holes with your finger and in these holes effectively pour the composition. Leave to cool and then place the formed drops in a closed container.

Observations
The time of the melting process can vary depending on the amount of liquid (tea and lemon juice) used, depending on how hard you want the drops to come out, if you speed up the fire, the composition will decrease and thicken faster (be careful of the risk of sugar burning) ...

Sugar can burn very easily and practically if it happens, you have ruined everything, so you need a lot of patience and keep the composition on low heat, by continuous chewing with a wooden spoon.

If the drops do not harden enough (they are more like soft caramels) the method of storage by individual wrapping in food foil is recommended.

The amount of essential oils and the honey wax cap will influence the crystallization process of the sugar. Too much can make the sugar not crystallize, but become more caramel (soft).

If you do not have parchment paper, you can try greasing a tray with coconut butter and then pour the composition.

Use only essential oils that can be administered internally.
