Three cheers for our friends at LaNay Farms in Orem, Utah. Not only are they an amazing farm where they grow nutrient-rich produce and they deliver it fresh to you within HOURS of being picked, but, they are also a great source of information. Yes, they offer great information about raising food, preparing food and eating food. In their latest newsletter, they shared this recipe for Honey-Thyme Cough Syrup. We are happy to share this recipe with you.

Honey-Thyme Cough Syrup
Easy to make, more soothing than store-bought, natural and fresh will more powerfully provide the relief your body needs. Take one teaspoon as needed to relieve a cough.
2 cups water
3 tablespoons fresh or dried thyme (best from the garden)
1 cup raw honey
Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan, then remove from heat. Add the thyme, cover and let sit for 10 minutes or until cooled. Strain, then whisk in the honey until dissolved. Store in a glass jar. The cough syrup will keep refrigerated for 2 months.
