Making my grandmother Pancha's cough syrup. [EN] // [ES]

There are times in life when traditional medicine, the one prescribed by the doctor we usually go to, does not have the expected result, and we have to resort to those old grandma's recipes, the ones we used to run away from when we were kids because they tasted horrible, or at least that's what we said, but they certainly relieved our ailments, and the main ingredient of those magic potions was the love with which they were prepared, of that I have no doubt. My Mathias has been sick again with the flu, even though he has been treated for more than 3 months with a treatment recommended by the pulmonologist, he only got a few drops of rain and the next day his chest was very congested and with a cough like a dying dog, the truth is that I was very upset, because it is not that I have spent only a couple of dollars in that treatment, but also very seriously it was only a few drops and the cold wind.



This situation made me wonder, maybe her immune system is so bad that she couldn't even stand to get wet, but on the other hand I remember that we went to the beach just a few weeks ago, she spent the whole day at the beach, plus she was all the time with wet clothes and nothing happened to her thank God, so after a week of administering the new and reinforced treatment she was prescribed, I decided to listen to my aunt and prepare her that purple onion syrup with honey that she hated so much but that helped me a lot in my childhood when I had those bad flus. After deciding to prepare this syrup, I wanted to do some research on the properties of both honey and red onion because, although it is an old recipe, I like to know what I am giving to my little one.



As for the red onion, it contains both vitamins and minerals that help prevent and treat flus, colds and colds, it contains flavonoids and antioxidants that also make it perfect for strengthening the immune system, as well as being inflammatory and antimicrobial. Honey, apart from containing sugar, fructose, glucose and sucrose, contains antioxidants, flavonoids and phenols, which contribute to cardiovascular health when used as a substitute for cane sugar, and what attracts me most about it is that it helps soothe coughs in children, and adults too to tell the truth, although it should be noted that in children under 1 year should not be administered because it can cause botulism, so although my son is about to turn 6 years old, I am giving him this syrup with some caution. Preparing it is really simple, however, the wait to consume it is a little long so to speak, so I show you how to prepare it and I tell you right now that it is wonderful.

Ingredients

1 Cup Chopped red onion
10 Tbsp Honey bees
1 Sterilized glass jar




Preparation

Preparation time 24 Hours Minutes
Cooking Time N/A






Once the red onion is finely chopped, we will add it to the glass jar, we can use a mayonnaise jar, to this jar we will also add the 10 tablespoons of honey.





We will shake very well so that everything is integrated and we will place it in a place where it can be in the light of the sun and the moon, as they say in my town, this is to put it in the sun and serene, we will leave it for 24 hours. With this process the honey will extract all the components of the onion making these two ingredients emulsify.



After 24 hours we will obtain as I said before, an emulsion of the onion with the honey, the honey will no longer be so viscous, but rather liquid, take the contents of the jar (honey and onion) and pass through a fine sieve or a double piece of gauze, this to separate the onion from the liquid, and place it in the same jar where we left it macerating, and ready our cough syrup, so easy.



As I mentioned before, the syrup is wonderful, my Mathias' cough has almost completely stopped, this syrup is estimated to help dissolve phlegm and for this reason it is considered an expectorant, and I must say that it has been just as some publications on the internet promise, in this case I can say that the recipe of my beloved grandmother has worked as expected, and unlike me, my son has not hated the taste of the syrup, because to tell the truth its taste is not bad at all, it was me who hated medicines hahaha.

Hay ocasiones en la vida en la que la medicina tradicional, esa que nos receta el medico al que comúnmente acudimos, no tiene el resultado esperado, y tenemos que recurrir a esas viejas recetas de abuelita, esas a las que le huíamos cuando éramos niños porque sabían horrible, o por lo menos eso decíamos, pero que sin duda alguna nos aliviaban los males, y es que el ingrediente principal de esas pócimas mágicas era el amor con el que eran preparados, de eso no me queda la menor duda. Mi Mathias nuevamente se ha enfermado de gripe, aun cuando ya tiene más de 3 meses con un tratamiento que le recomendó el neumólogo, solo le cayeron unas cuantas gotas de lluvia y ya al día siguiente estaba muy congestionado su pecho y con una tos como de perro moribundo, la verdad es que me moleste muchísimo, pues no es que haya gastado solo un par de dólares en ese tratamiento, sino que además muy en serio solo fueron unas gotitas y el viento frio.



Esta situación me llevo a preguntarme, será que su sistema inmunológico esta tan mal que ni siquiera pudo soportar mojarse apenas, pero por otro lado recuerdo que fuimos a la playa tan solo hace unas semanas, paso el día entero en alguna, además de que en todo momento estuvo con la ropa mojada y no le sucedió nada gracias a Dios, entonces luego de una semana administrándole el nuevo y reforzado tratamiento que le recetaron, decidí hacerle caso a mi tía y prepararle ese jarabe de cebolla morada con miel que tanto odiaba pero que mucho me ayudo en mi niñez cuando tenía esas gripes fuertes. Luego de decidirme a preparar este jarabe, quise investigar un poco sobre las propiedades tanto de la miel como de la cebolla morada pues, aunque es una receta antigua, me gusta saber qué es lo que le estoy dando a mi pequeño.



Por parte de la cebolla morada, esta contiene tanto vitaminas como minerales que ayudan a la prevención y tratamiento de las gripes, resfriados y catarros, contiene flavonoides y antioxidantes que además la hacen perfecta para fortalecer el sistema inmunológico, así como también es inflamatoria y antimicrobiana. Por su parte la miel, aparte de contener azúcar, fructosa, glucosa y sucrosa, contiene antioxidantes, flavonoides y fenoles, que contribuyen a la salud cardiovascular cuando se usa como sustituto del azúcar de caña, y lo que más me atrae de ella es que ayuda a calmar la tos en niños, y en adultos también a decir verdad, aunque hay que tener en cuenta que en niños menores de 1 año no se debe administrar pues puede causar botulismo, así que aunque mi hijo ya está cerca de cumplir sus 6 años, le estoy dando este jarabe con algo de cautela. Prepararlo es realmente sencillo, sin embargo, la espera para consumirlo si es un poco larga por así decirlo, así que les muestro como lo prepare y les digo desde ya que es una maravilla.

Ingredientes

1 Taza Cebolla morada picadita
10 Cdas Miel de abejas
1 Frasco de vidrio esterilizado




Preparación

Tiempo de preparación 24 Horas Minutos
Tiempo de Cocción N/A






Una vez picada finamente la cebolla morada la agregaremos en el frasco de vidrio, podemos utilizar un frasco de mayonesa, a este frasco además le vamos a agregar las 10 cucharadas de miel de abeja.





Agitaremos muy bien para que todo se integre y colocaremos en un sitio en donde pueda estar a la luz del sol y de la luna, como dicen en mi pueblo, esto es ponerlo a sol y sereno, esto lo dejaremos por 24 horas. Con este proceso la miel extraerá todos los componentes de la cebolla haciendo que estos dos ingredientes se emulsionen.



Pasadas las 24 horas obtendremos como ya les dije antes, una emulsión de la cebolla con la miel, la miel ya no será tan viscosa, sino más bien liquida, tomamos el contenido del frasco (miel y cebolla) y pasamos por un tamiz fino o por un trozo doble de gasa, esto para separar la cebolla del líquido, y lo colocamos en el mismo frasco donde lo dejamos macerando, y listo nuestro jarabe para la tos, así de fácil.



Como lo mencione antes, el jarabe es una maravilla, la tos de Mi Mathias ha cesado casi por completo, este jarabe se estima que puede ayudar a disolver la flema y por esto es considerada expectorante, y debo decir que ha sido tal como lo prometen algunas publicaciones en internet, en este caso puedo decir que la receta de mi amada abuela ha funcionado tal y como se esperaba, y a diferencia de mí, mi hijo no ha aborrecido el sabor del jarabe. pues a decir verdad su sabor no está nada mal, era yo que odiaba los medicamentos jajaja.
