Eucalyptus and Honey Toffee Recipe

3 tablespoons pure honey, 1 cup sugar
85gm butter, 3 or 4 drops of Emu Ridge Eucalyptus Oil

Place the sugar, butter and honey in a saucepan. Stir over a low heat until the sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil and cook for 10 mins or until a little toffee dropped into cold water forms a hard ball. When ready remove from the stove and add the Eucalyptus Oil. Pour into a greased shallow tray or patty pans and chill. Break into pieces when set.
This recipe is from Bev Turners Recipes and Uses Book by M. Wilson Macgillivray. The recipe book is available online or phone Emu Ridge.

One thought on “Eucalyptus and Honey Sweets for Coughs or Colds

  1. Thank you soooo much for offering the recipe for eucalyptus honey toffee! My poor husband got hit with a terrible sore throat. I made a quick batch of these for him and he said they were wonderfully soothing. I’m not at all qualified to make any kind of medicinal claims, but they sure helped us out! Saved him from missing a days work. And they are delicious! Thank you!!
