Honey & Onion Cough Syrup

What’s better than finding relief from that annoying wintertime cough?

Finding relief in a truly delicious, simple and inexpensive syrup, of course. A few years ago, Rosemary Gladstar, renowned herbalist, shared the recipe for her go-to cough remedy via the blog of one of my favorite herb purveyors, Mountain Rose Herbs. I watched her video recently one afternoon, and before the week was over, had made a few brilliant, sweet fall gifts.

I bottled the syrup in the very medicinal-looking 8 ounce amber glass bottles, then embellished the bottles with the Snowflakes Drift style in champagne, in the large oval label shape and the small circle label shapes. This label style reminds me of the dark, but somehow cozy, humor of Edward Gorey illustrations, available in the levity of four very approachable color schemes.

  4. Leave over very low heat for 24 hours, and then strain the liquid from the onions. (You can use the onions in cooking if you’d like. I threw them into a salty stew with great results.) Bottle the syrup and keep refrigerated.
