You need half a cup of water and two tablespoons of honey along with a small bowl and a dough roller. To cut the dough get a bottle cap and store them in a small metal container. Boil half a cup of water and put licorice according to the number of lozenge required and simmer it on a low flame for 10 minutes. Take 2 tablespoons of honey and put in a quarter measuring cup. Fill up the rest of the measuring cup with the rest of the liquid that is made by simmering. Put the slippery elm bark powder (1/2 cup) in a bowl and make a depression in the middle of it. Pour in the honey mixture into that depression. Mix this concoction into smooth dough. Spread sum slippery elm powder on the table and put the dough on it. Roll out the dough to a 1/4th inch thickness using the roller pin. Make small balls using the cap and make the lozenges through them.
