Only four ingredients in this potent homemade cough drop recipe! These throat lozenges help soothe a scratchy throat, boost the immune system and prevent a cold getting worse.
In a small bowl, pour the boiling water over the elderberries, and cover. Let sit 10 minutes to steep.
Strain the elderberries, and press out all the juice.
In a small pot, combine the elderberry juice, honey, and coconut oil and heat over medium to high heat.
Bring the mixture to a bubbling boil (it will foam), remove from heat, and whisk until the bubbles go down. Place back on the heat.
Repeat this for 6 minutes or until the mixture sits at 300 degrees. The mixture should darken slightly and become a bit more sticky as the honey thickens up.
Pour the mixture into individual candy molds, keep them fairly small. Please in the freezer to set (and store there).
