Homemade Honey Ginger Cough Syrup

Take 2.5-inch of ginger and peel off its skin. Chop this into small cubes.

Step 2: Grate the peel of 2 lemons. Take the lemons and grate their peel until you get 1-1.5 teaspoons of lemon zest.

Step 3: Add the ingredients in a pot of water. Take a saucepan and pour 1 cup of water into it. Then, add the chopped ginger and lemon zest to this water and stir. Heat this liquid over medium flame.

Step 4: Boil the liquid and simmer for 4—5 minutes. Allow the liquid to boil over and then reduce the heat of the flame to low. Let the liquid simmer for the next 4-5 minutes

Step 5: Strain the liquid and keep it aside. Take a fresh bowl and strain this liquid into it, until the saucepan only contains the ginger bits and lemon zest. Keep this aside.

Step 6: Heat honey in a fresh saucepan. Take a fresh saucepan and pour 1 cup of honey into it. Allow this to heat over low flame for the next 8-10 minutes. Caution: Make sure the honey does not boil, as that will destroy its medicinal properties.

Step 7: Add the ginger-lemon zest liquid + lemon juice to this. Once the honey is hot, pour the previously prepared lemon zest and ginger liquid into it. Then, squeeze out the juice of the 2 lemons and pour it into this mixture. Mix everything well.

Step 8: Keep stirring for the next 10 minutes. Over a low-medium flame, keep stirring this mixture for the next 10 minutes, until the liquid starts to bubble and boil.

Step 9: Let the mixture cool down. Once the mixture has boiled over, take it off the flame and allow it to cool, until it is just warm to touch. Then, pour it into a glass jar.
