Ma's Cough Syrup

Recipe by Mimi in Maine
READY IN: 10mins
YIELD: 1 cup




  • In a pan heat the molasses, vinegar, and butter.
  • Pour into a special mug for your child.
  • Stick a plastic spoon in it and all you have to do when you want it reheated is to put it in the microwave for only a VERY SHORT time and it will be hot and ready for another dose.
  • At night, put a heating pad on LOW with a facecloth on top of it and set the cup on it so that it will be warm when needed during the night--(try this during the day so you will know if it is the right temperature to leave on at night).
  • If you have a couple of kids with a cough, make them each one of their own.
