Honey Spice Drops

With a touch of Ginger essential oil, these drops are great for on-the-go families and commuters.  

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3-5 drops Ginger essential oil*
  1. Combine sugar, water, honey and butter in a heavy pot.
  2. Cook slowly over medium heat until is reach the "hard crack stage", checking it often.  
    • Do NOT turn up the heat higher to speed up the process! It will burn! 
  3. It is done when you can drizzle a spoonful of the syrup into a cup of cold water and have it turn to brittle threads--take it off the heat immediately.
  4. Count to 30-60 and then stir in the Ginger essential oil.
  5. Pour into a greased cookie sheet.
  6. Fold edges of the candy into the middle until cool enough to handle.
  7. Working quickly, pull and roll into long strips...and cut into nickle size pieces.
  8. Allow to cool completely and harden.
  9. If your drops have been cooked long enough, you'll be able to store them in a ziploc bag unwrapped.
  10. If they are a bit soft and still sticky, wrap them in waxed paper squares and store in a ziploc bag.
* You could replace Ginger essential oil with On Guard Protective Blend, for immune boosting benefits.
