Many people claim that these candies can help in relieving cough and sore throat in a few days.
Are you tired of coughing, as well as of consumed chemicals in order to suppress it? These candies are suitable for adults and children as well. Since ancient times, people used to treat cough with sugar and so our grandmothers fried sugar and poured it with the various preparations. Fried sugar actually helps in relieving sore throat because of throat irritation.
Children will certainly love these candies against cough more than any other standard medicine, so you can try this effective recipe:
- 100 grams of sugar
- Half a teaspoon of ginger powder
- One teaspoon of lemon juice
Prepare silicone mold, aluminum foil or a normal tray and toothpicks as well.
Brush the mold with oil. Put the sugar in a pot and cook on a low heat while stirring constantly not to get burned. When the sugar melts properly, add a teaspoon of ginger and lemon juice. Continue cooking for another few minutes, stirring occasionally. The mixture is ready when it becomes golden brown, darker than the original color. Pour the mixture into the prepared mold and leave in the fridge for half an hour. If you want to make a lollipop instead of candy put a toothpick into the mixture.
Children should eat two to three such candies a day. Many people claim that these candies can help in relieving cough and sore throat in a few days. If your cough is not improving after two to three days, visit your doctor.
