Honey Turnip Cough Syrup

My parents have been using this all-natural method to make their own cough syrup since I can remember. Turnips and honey have awesome natural antibiotic qualities to them. When they meld together, they make a fantastic medicine. This is just as effective as store-bought syrups for cough and congestion, yet it has no side effects. You can keep refilling the turnip with honey to make more of the medicine.

You can use a large turnip and cut it in half, or you can use a small turnip and scoop out the top.

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Cut turnip in half and scoop out a good amount from the middle with a spoon. Place a couple teaspoons of honey inside the hole so there's enough room for the turnip to "sweat" to create the medicine.
  2. After a few hours, the syrup will be ready in the middle of the turnip. Drink it, then refill with honey as needed.

I'm pretty sure it is a turnip, looking at the pictures.

Does this cough syrup need to be refrigerated, and also how long will it last?

No, you just make it as needed. So you put a dollop of honey inside to let it sweat at room temperature, then you drink it.

If you're only going to need a bit, then just make a bit. If you happen to make too much, you can fridge it for a couple days in an airtight container.

I'm also going to remember this next time it's needed. I really love natural things like this as they are healthier for us without any side effects as you said. Thank you for this :)

You're very welcome! I hope you never need it, as I hope you always stay in tip top shape, but when you naturally do, I think you'll love its fast-soothing effect! :)

Dextromethorphan Hbr is a very good cough medication. When it came on the market years ago, you could get a box of the little pills for about a dollar plus. Recently, I checked with the pharmacy to see if they still carried it. They still do. The cheapest preparation they had was a small bottle of liquid for $27.00. No Go!

Do you refrigerate the turnip when you use it, so it can be used again

How many times can the turnip be used before a new one is needed?
