Onion Syrup

Hubby has been really ill with a respiratory infection.  This will be our second week in...  His cough is relentless.  It is so difficult to watch. 

We ran out of cough medicine so after he went to bed...and continued to cough incessantly...I did some searching.  I came up with a recipe that I found on Pinterest.

I whipped up a batch last night and allowed it to sit for 12 hours.  It is harmless and can be used whenever needed.  I used a sweet onion.  The honey was local but I cannot vouch for it being organic. 

Were you aware that honey that you buy in a grocery store may not be pure honey?

All I did was chop a whole sweet onion and add enough liquified honey to cover.

Please go to www.herbalrootszine to check out this and many more great ideas!

This syrup will store in the refrigerator for several months.  The onions will be removed later today.  The taste is subtle.  Please do not give honey to any child under one year of age, however.


  1. If ever I have a cold or stuffed sinuses I swear by raw white onion. The old remedies work!

    1. I absolutely agree, Jane. Somehow we've been convinced that there is only one way...the way of the pharmaceutical. The old ways DO work!

  2. I wish Art a speedy recovery.
