Homemade cough drops!

From an FB update!!!  Everything is natural in it, so no harm trying... I am yet to try it!

The next time you or a family member have a sore throat, try this homemade cough drops remedy instead of running to the pharmacy.

• 1 cup powdered jaggery
• 1 tbsp ghee
• 1 tsp ginger powder
• ¼ tsp black pepper powder
• 1 tsp turmeric powder
• A pinch of salt

• Melt jaggery in a pan and add ginger powder, turmeric powder, salt and ghee. Mix well till bubbles start forming.
• Turn the flame off, once mixture is cool, divide into equal portions and roll into small circular shapes similar to cough drops.
• Store in an airtight container.

The turmeric and salt will help loosen the mucus. Children can take up to 2 tablets a day and adults can take 3 tablets.
