1 tablespoon of chamomile

1 tablespoon of mint

1 tablespoon of fennel

1 tablespoon of dandelion

1 tablespoon of ginger

1/2 cup of sugar

1/3 cup corn syrup

1 cup of water

  1. Place one cup of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. When this happens, add the herbs. Let the mixture boil for 10 minutes. After this time, turn off the heat and let the liquid stand for three minutes.

  2. Strain the liquid, add the sugar and corn syrup. Heat this mixture over low heat until it starts to boil. Let it boil, without stirring, until the mixture begins to crystallize. Do not let it harden completely. When this happens, turn off the heat.
