Horehound Candy Recipe

Boil 2 ounces of dried horehound in 1-1/2 pints of water for a half hour. Then strain and add 3-1/2 pounds of brown sugar. Boil to the hard ball stage (270 degrees Fahrenheit) and pour onto a well-greased cookie sheet. When the candy is cool enough to hold its shape, mark it into squares.
