This recipe can be used in so many things, from coffee, tea, to even ice cream topping. Lavender is in bloom this time of year so figured I’d give a recipe to use the fresh produce out there. This is basically a simple syrup infused with the taste of lavender.
3 C Water
3 C Granulated Sugar
4 T Fresh Lavender Blossoms
Purple Food Coloring(optional)*
-In large sauce pan over medium low heat, melt sugar and water together, stir mixture often to keep sugar from sticking. Once sugar is dissolved add remaining ingredients.
-Bring mixture to boil, cook for 5 minute, remove from heat, cover and steep for 30 minutes.
-Return to heat, bring back to slight boil, remove from heat and strain through mesh sieve, cheesecloth or the like. Store in airtight container. Good in refrigerator for about 2 weeks.
*if you don’t add food coloring it will be clear, so the outcome of the product you wish is up to you.
