MARSHMALLOW COUGH SYRUP
1 1/2 to 2 1/2 tsp. chopped dried marshmallow root
2 C. water
2 C. granulated sugar
1/4 C. orange juice or juice of 1 lemon
Bring the marshmallow root and water to a boil in a small saucepan.
Reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
Strain resultant 1 cup liquid into another saucepan. Over low heat,
slowly stir in the sugar until it becomes thick and granules completely
dissolve, stirring in more water if the mixture becomes too thick.
Remove from heat and stir in the orange juice. Transfer to a container
and allow to cool before covering tightly.
