Onion Honey Cure- Homemade Cough Syrup

I don't remember where I got the instructions/recipe for this natural cure against coughs and scratchy throat. But it's better and a lot cheaper than buying lozenges and cough syrup. So when you're home and need something soothing, give it a try. I made a very simple version.  Googling it*, I discovered that some people add garlic and keep it in a covered jar, but I just made this one in a teacup.

It takes just a few hours for a natural cough syrup to form combining the best of the onion and honey.

Of course, if you're not home, you will need to find some sort of lozenge to have with you. Most are not only awfully expensive, but they are so full of sugar, you may as well buy a regular sucking candy. So, it's best to look for one of the sugarless types.
