First of all, you have to prepare your ingredients. You will need the following products: water, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, a little honey, one or two lemons, a teaspoon of grated ginger and a little of clove powder.
In a medium sized saucepan, put two tablespoons of brown sugar. Then add a little water, about half a cup, and boil the mixture at low heat until the sugar melts. Then, as the sugar begins to melt, add the juice from two lemons, one teaspoon of grated ginger and one teaspoon of clove powder. Mix the ingredients well, and when the sugar melts, take the pot from the fire. When the liquid has cooled, add two tablespoons of honey and stir well. Finally, your mixture should have a slightly thicker consistency than a syrup.
Take an oven tray and put some baking paper on it. Using a teaspoon, take a little syrup and put it on the tray. Let them cool for one or two hours and they will solidify! And here you have candy for your sore throats, made by you!
I recommend you these cough drops because are natural and you can eat them all day long, without contraindications.[/expand]
