In honor of my dear daughter being sick with a cold I will share this home remedy with you:
1/2 cup of honey
1 onion, finely chopped
4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
Mix, cover and keep at warm temperature. Have patient swallow a spoonful several times a day or when coughing or sore throat becomes uncomfortable.
After five days discard and make a new batch. Surprisingly, this mixture doesn't taste half bad. I keep thinking that it would make a great glaze for roast pork.
