Total Time: 10

Yield: about 1 cup.

This fragrant syrup showcases subtle flavors and works best with light New England spring honey. Try it warm over ice cream or fresh berries, or as a glaze for roasted root vegetables or poultry. Lavender lends a flowery aroma, but this syrup would also taste great infused with the flavor of a different herb, such as mint, rosemary, or thyme.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup local spring honey
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender blossoms

Instructions:

In a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, combine honey, sugar, water, and lavender. Bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves completely. (Watch carefully, as the mixture may foam -- don't let it boil over.) Turn heat down to low and let syrup simmer about 4 minutes. Strain into a small container and let cool slightly. Use immediately, or let cool to room temperature, cover, and refrigerate up to one week. (Warm syrup gently before using.)
