Whenever we go to a farmers market or a craft show there is always a “honey” stand where they sell fresh honey, honey sticks, and honey candy. The candy is very expensive. A piece like the above picture is usually around $3.00 USD. My daughter loves it and always buys some. So this afternoon she decided to google how to make her own and she made it with a friend.
This is such a simple procedure and it made quite a few pieces. The flavor is awesome!! I am sure you could cut back on the sugar if you wanted but the amount of pieces this made, I don’t feel too bad letting the kids eat it.
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup water
1 cup sugar
Put all in a pan and bring to a rolling boil. Continue to boil for 5 minutes and 30 seconds. Carefully ladle into molds.
You can add cinnamon also for a twist on the flavor. We are going to try it with lemon also so the next time anyone gets a sore throat we will try our own lozenges.
