Excellent Cough Syrup or Tonic to Boost Immunity

Excellent Cough Syrup or Tonic to Boost Immunity

Preparation time: 15-20 minutes

Cooking time: 2-3 hours


1 large fresh whole pineapple, skin and core on, cut into 1-inch cubes

3 cups fresh cranberry (can be replaced by 4 Sicilian lemons sliced, skin on)

1-piece fresh ginger root finely sliced (the size of the ginger piece depends on your own spice tolerance. I use a large piece.)

3 cinnamon sticks

10 cloves

10 black peppercorns

½ teaspoon sea salt

1½ liters filtered water

2-3 tablespoons raw honey


Step 1 (cutting the pineapple)

Remove the crown/leafy top and thoroughly rinse and scrub your fruit with a produce brush

Using a sharp knife, cut the whole pineapple (including skin and core) in 1-inch cubes

Transfer to a large pot

Step 2 (cooking the ingredients)

Add to the cubed ​​pineapple, the cranberries or sliced lemon, sliced ginger root, cinnamon sticks, cloves, black peppercorns, sea salt, and filtered water

Bring the large pot to a low/medium heat, simmer for 2-3 hours, until the mixture is well cooked and a little bit reduced

Turn off the heat, let it cool completely

Step 3 (Adding the honey)

When it is completely cooled, add the honey, stir well to mix

Important:Never heat raw honey at high temperatures since it loses all its healing properties and becomes toxic for consumption (1)

Step 4 (preparing the tonic)

Remove the cinnamon sticks (optional)

Using a blender, gradually pulse the mixture until smooth, transfer to a bowl

Step 3 (tonic sieving)

Strain the mixture in a large sieve in order to remove undesired solid components

Store in mason jars

Keep in the fridge for 7-10 days,

For coughing - Take ¼ cup 3-4 times a day

To boost the immune system - Take ½ cup 2 times a day
