Homemade cough syrup

We're all sick! I read somewhere that honey is a great cough syrup, and perhaps more effective than over the counter stuff. So, I manufactured this cough syrup:

1/4 cup lemon juice
4 tbsp honey
2 tbsp water
a dash of cayenne pepper

Cook over low heat in a sauce pan until it carmelizes. Let it sit until cool, use. My husband felt that it helped his cough last night, so I'm about to brew some more again.

I needed this recipe a month ago! :) Was sick pretty much ALL of February - I can't think of a time that's ever happened to me...the flu is bad this year!
