The Best Cough Syrup

I came down with a nasty cold this past week. This particular cold happens to accompanied by a horrid cough. So, as the cold season approaches, I’m taking it as the perfect opportunity to share with you the absolute best cough syrup I’ve ever used!

My mom would make this for me and my siblings when we were children, it was the only cough syrup that ever worked for me. Thankfully, it still does wonders! Working its magic powers to combat the annoyance of a cough in a safe and straightforward way, without any of the side effects other medications might carry.

Simply chop an onion, place it in a pot or pan, cover it with real maple syrup, and cook on the lowest heat for a couple of hours. Stir occasionally to make sure it doesn’t burn. Then simply strain the onions out, and store the syrup in a glass jar.  Take a spoonful as needed.

In addition, you can also add osha root, wild cherry bark, marshmallow root, and licorice root for a more effective syrup. I didn’t have any of these on hand, but the syrup still worked well on its own. You can also let the onions dry out for candied onions to snack on. What a treat!
