Hi, I could not find a thread for this so here it is.

I am interested if anyone knows how to make cough lozengers that are safe for my daughter.

Peanut, corn, wheat, eggwhite, soy, tomato. kiwi fruit, mushroom, cat, dog, bird, dustmite+more inhalents.. (the list is still incomplete, further testing to be done the process in Australia is slow and expensive, when you do not live in the capitals)

If you want to make throat (or cough) lozenges on purpose, first cook the honey or molasses to the 'hard-crack" stage on a candy thermometer. Then add your dry herbs for about 10 minutes of simmering or steeping. It won't matter if the honey cools off somewhat when the herbs are added if it was already at the "hard-crack" stage of heat. The reason you add the herbs second is that it takes honey or molasses perhaps half an hour or more to get hot enough, and this might overcook the herbs.

Spread this hot mixture (or place in small blobs) onto a buttered cookie sheet to cool. When the mixture is partially cool it will be easy to score it with lines to facilitate breaking it up later. These tasty, broken bits are your new cough drops!
