My Monday Make
When Martin came up for Easter he brought with him a sore throat and sniffles needless to say he passed it on to me although mine has just been a slight irritation, some wives gets flowers I get his bugs, anyway as soon as I started to feel that little tickle in my throat I set about making some
Honey and Lemon sore throat candies
Very easy recipe, I was lucky that I had just picked the last two small lemons from tree and still had some honey from our hives.
1cup of honey
1/2 tsp vinegar
1/8 cup of water
juice of one lemon
melt the butter add honey vinegar and water, bring to the boil and continue to boil until you reach a temperature of 250c
maintain a rolling boil at this temperature for 12 mins, the raise the temperature to 300c, remove from heat and slowly add the lemon juice be careful as it will splutter, return to heat and bring back to the boil for 1 min.
Pour into a tray I dusted mine with icing sugar, and leave to cool,
then cut into squares.
At this stage pop into the fridge it will then just snap apart.
The only thing is they are so lovely you cant stop eating them :-)
