It’s winter... here is how you can make your own natural cough drops. Ingredients
* ½ cup of raw, honey (Manuka is best)
* 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
* 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger root
* Optional for dusting: ¼ cup powdered cane sugar and 1 teaspoon powdered vitamin C
* candy thermometer, * candy mold or baking paper
1. Measure the honey, lemon juice, and grated ginger and pour it all into a saucepan.
2. With a wire whisk, stir the mixture as it heats to a boil. It will become foamy and start to climb up the sides of the pan, remove it from the heat and continue to whisk it until the foam reduces and then put it back over the heat. Repeat this until a candy thermometer reads 150 degreeC (hard crack) honey heats fast and scorches easily!
3. Drop a bit of the mixture into a glass of ice water (or, dip a spoon into the mixture and then quickly dip it into the ice water). If the mixture forms a hard, crunchy ball, it's ready! If not, keep up with the whisking and heating and try again in a minute or so. Once a hard ball forms in the ice water, you're good to
4. Once foam has reduced, carefully, drizzle the candy into the mold (or onto the oiled paper). Let it cool (not the freezer or fridge) until the cough drops are hard. When they are hard remove from mold or paper.
5. Optional (to prevent sticking): In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar with the vitamin C powder. Drop the cough drops into the mixture to coat. Pour the sugar and cough drops into a sieve and sift to remove extra sugar.
6. Store in an airtight container. These actually do better in the fridge, as they attract moisture and tend to get sticky if left out. Loved by kids and adults ;)
This is the making of my sambal goreng jawa for buka puasa last night 😃 .
It is a typical menu in the state of Johore for #kenduri
tahlil or yassin #malamjumaat
which could be considered as a vegetarian dish if you cut out the ikan bilis or dried anchovies. Correct me if i’m wrong. 😉
So most of us ladies from down under must learn to cook this recipe from a tender age so that we could help our mums in the kitchen whenever we’re having a feast or thanksgiving reception as mentioned above.
The ingredients are mainly onion, garlic, chillies, lemongrass, galangal which are blended together and later being fried till the oil separates. Then, just pour a bit of coconut milk, tamarind juice and salt to taste.
Next, add fried tofu, tempe, potatoes (but i prefer to airfry it to make it less sinful 😅) and not forgetting, beancurd skin, glass noddles and also french beans (or long beans, whatever).
Lastly, throw in some sliced onions onto the mix and blend it well with the rest of ingredients. Et voila.. it’s ready to be served. .
Bon appetit! 😃
