Thyme, Ginger & Honey Instant Pot Cough Syrup

There is a lot going on right now in our world, and I have to say that I’ve been pretty shocked at the panic that has been happening over the last couple of weeks.  Toilet paper out of stock at every Costco, hand sanitizers nowhere to be found, and rice and beans...
