The recipe :)
by Rachel on Aug 8, 2013

I was wondering if you had an actual recipe for this cough syrup? Just rough estimates would be good enough for me :)

    5 cups wild cherries
    2 cups water
    4 cups food grade glycerin or white sugar
    1 cup dried mullein
    1 cup dried ginger
    1 glass jar and lid

    place wild cherries in a cooking pot; add just enough water so cherries don't burn.
    Add either glycerin or sugar.

    Stir and let immerse for 20 min.
    Add ginger and mullein; stir. Let simmer 20 min.

    Turn off heat and add wild cherry bark. Let sit for 2 to 3 hours.

    Strain herbs; put finished syrup in a clean glass jar, label and store in fridge.

    NOTE: Quantities listed are not fixed; adjust to your taste.

Hi, I was wondering if you could use raw honey for this instead of sugar for this?

    It's best to use the sugar because it is an important part of fermenting. Thanks!

Great idea!

I would love to make this wine, but I don't have access to the cherries. (the season has passed here) Can your recipe be made with only the cherry bark?

    You can actually use blueberries as a substitute for the cherries in the recipe, but, as soon as the cherries are available then those would be best! Blueberries will not make as potent of a wine as the wild cherries will but they will work ok.

Just wanted to tell you that I add hibiscus flowers to almost every tea that I make. I LOVE the taste and the additional zing it gives to all my teas. I also really appreciate the quick response on that last order. I truly appreciate all of you. The products are fantastic and am seeing results with herbal usage. I have auto-immune problems and it is a long haul with illnesses.

Thanks again.
