Making Horehound Lozenges~

 1 1/3 cups dried horehound...4 cups of brown sugar...2 cups of honey...1 teaspoon cream of tartar.....stir over a low heat until dissolved...heat to a temperature of 220%F...add one teaspoon of butter...but do not stir....and heat to 312%F.....remove from the heat, add one teaspoon of lemon juice...and pour into hot buttered pans...mark into squares and cool...for sore throats, hoarseness, coughs, catarrh, smoker's cough i have made it a few times i pour the toffee into a heavily buttered stainless steel fry pan....leave it cool until it can handled...then pull off a largish chunk and pull and roll smaller pieces off. i roll them in icing sugar, that stops them sticking to each other!!!
