Expectorant (Cough Syrup)

1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Dark brown sugar to cover

Put onion and garlic in a deep bowl. Cover with sugar, and let the mixture stand for at least 1 hour. A syrupy juice will result. For dislodging congestion, this homemade expectorant works better than many over-the-counter cough medicines.
