This syrup can help to soothe a cough and fight infection in the lungs.
• 1–2 tbsp brown sugar
• 1 onion
MAKES & KEEPS
Makes a small, variable amount – about 10 tsp.
Use over 2–3 days.
Put the sugar on a small plate or a saucer. Cut the onion and put on to the sugar, cut sides down.
Leave for 24 hours. The sugar pulls out the onion’s juices and together they make the syrup in the saucer.
Take 1 tsp every 1–2 hours until the cough is soothed.
