This is a old recipe handed down from mother to mother. It is for a sore throat or cough, tastes great and is not harmful in any way!

A polish girl once gave me a similar recipe but using sugar. Since I don't use sugar and know honey would work better I had always wanted to try it this way. Will give it a try.
