Many people who hear about this dismiss it as an old wives' tale. Until they actually try it. It really works.
Chop up an onion, put in glass a jar, add liquid honey cover, seal and let stand at room temperature at least 24 hours. Use the syrup that forms as a cough remedy as needed, a teaspoon at a time. The taste is not great but medicine does not have to taste good.

Polonius3, I have heard of this remedy, but I have never tried it. Have you ever used it yourself? Does it have to be refrigerated or can it be kept at room temperature?

My Mrs swears by it (a smoker BTW). It's kept at room temp, but don't make a huge batch. 2-3 spoonfuls of honey over a chopped onion should last a few days. Then chuck the onions and start anew.

My mom used to make this for me when i was a child. It usually works if you have a minor cough, but doesn't work too well if you have an asthma cough or brochitis.
