Eucalyptus and Honey Toffee Recipe


3 tablespoons pure Kangaroo Island 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 as was given to her by M. Wilson. The recipe book has lots of hints tips and recipes and is available online or phone Emu Ridge.

    Can I purchase the eucalyptus and honey drops in Adelaide and if so where?

    1. Emu Ridge says:

      Hi Jan, thanks for your enquiry, unfortunately at this stage no, because they are hand made in small batches and packaging they would be too expensive to wholesale. You will only find them in our retail or our online shop. We hope to hear from you. Kind regards Bev

    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!!
