Cough Syrup       submitted by Sherri Owen

 
A recipe, not for salve or skin but for a nasty cough -
 
Ingredients:
- 1large red onion - sliced
- 1large grated ginger root
- 1large bottle of honey (preferably from local beekeeper)
- *optionally add a clove or two of garlic for extra oomph

Preparation:
Layer in order given in glass baking dish - bake in slowest oven until done (mushy). Strain if desired :) and bottle.
In a hurry? You can microwave a smaller amount and even use powdered ginger and a simple white onion, but the above slow-cooking recipe is preferred to get all the goodies cooked through each other.
