CINNAMON-HONEY LOZENGES

Makes 8-10

 

Ingredients

½ cup honey

¼ cup coconut oil

2 tsp ground cinnamon

 

Preparation

Add coconut oil into a mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until it's whipped. If you don't have a hand mixer, you can use a whisk instead, making sure to move at a fast pace to obtain the desired texture. Add the honey and continue to whip until the honey and oil are well incorporated. Begin adding cinnamon and continue to mix. Once thoroughly combined, pour the mixture into silicone candy molds and freeze for about 20 minutes. Once frozen, you can wrap them up individually using small squares of wax paper and store in the refrigerator.

 

*Candies must remain refrigerated.

 

KICKED-UP HONEY RELIEF

Makes 8-10

 

Ingredients

½ cup honey

¼ cup water

1-2 tsp cayenne pepper (or to taste)

 

Preparation

Place water in a saucepan on medium heat. Add the honey and stir frequently to avoid burning. After approximately 15 - 20 minutes and as the temperature gets closer to 300 degrees (use a candy thermometer if you have one) add the cayenne pepper and continue stirring. When the mixture reaches 300 degrees, remove from heat and pour into silicone candy molds or carefully drop by the tablespoonful onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Allow to cool and harden at room temperature.

 

Once set, you can wrap them up individually using small squares of wax paper and store them at room temperature. For other soothing honey recipes and information about honey as a natural holistic remedy, visit www.mielpura.org. (SOURCE: National Honey Board)
