Excerpted from Bensky:  Chinese Herbal Medicine Materia Medica

"Honey is slowly brought to a boil, and the froth and any residual wax or extraneous matter is scraped from the surface.  The honey is then poured through a filter.  It is returned to the wok, and again brought to a boil, which is maintained at 116-118 degrees centrigrade until the whole wok bubbles and the honey no longer stretches between the fingers.  Boiling water is then added to thin the honey, which is poured slowly over the licorice slices and briefly left covered.  The slices are then dry-fried at a low temperature until deep yellow and no longer sticky to the touch.  This is also known as prepared herb (zhi cao).  It is this method of preparation that is referred to with the pharmaceutical name Glycyrrhizae Radix preparata (zhi gan cao)."
