All About Horehound

By wildflowers
December 2, 2011

A nice hot cup of horehound tea with honey and lemon and a warm slice of banana nut bread covered in melted butter. That's one of my fondest childhood memories. With winter and the holidays just around the corner, I'm reminded of horehound and what a special herb it is.

I loved it. I think you can find the drops at The CrackerBarrell Resturant.
I remember having some as a kid. I always had a touch of asthma too.
My mom tried all kinds of things the doctor told her. I can remotely remember the
smell. Now I got to see if I can find some horehound drops. Great article, girlfriend. Loved it.

Ooo, if anyone has them, Cracker Barrel would--I'll check, too! I found them once a couple years ago at Bob Evan's but never since.
Great article, and thanks for the recipes!

I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

I agree I tip my hat to you.

Although...... I think it takes just about as long as doing it the old fashioned way. I am in my 2nd full day of doing it & I'm not getting/looking for that many things.
