    HotPepperRosemaryJelly's Note:

    This is a similar recipe to the one my grandpa used to make and give us kids when we were sick with a cold/cough. We loved it. We loved anything he gave us! :) The recipe belongs was shared by Jim Collums on Kathie's Herb Page. Molasses works well with horehound. He says this is incredibly great! So I am going to make some! I love molasses and it really worked for us kids!

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 20

    Yield:

    pieces

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Black strap molasses is recommended.
    2. 2
      Let 1 cup horehound tea steep for about 3 minutes, or to taste. ( Made into tea with 1 cup boiling water). Do this with a regular coffee pot.
    3. 3
      In a saucepan with the sides buttered, add 1 cup horehound tea, 2 cups of sugar and 3 tablespoons butter + molasses.
    4. 4
      Bring to a boil with medium heat and continue to boil until temperature on a candy thermometer reaches 260-270 degrees. (This is really important because if it goes higher than this, the rolling and twisting becomes unmanageable. Gets hard to fast.).
    5. 5
      Pour into a buttered pan and let set until cool enough to handle.
    6. 6
      Pull candy with buttered hands, twisting into ropes 4-5 inches long. Snip into pieces with kitchen shears.
    7. 7
      When cut, place all the pieces in a plastic container with sugar and shake for coating.
    8. 8
      NOTES: to prevent unnecessary crystalization, never stir the pot or scrape the pan.
