Herb Infused Honey

5 Sep


Here is a simple, fool proof recipe for something fun and creative for the whole family to enjoy, not to mention a great gift for just about anyone. I suggest serving these in your nightly tea or hot toddy (whichever is more your style), with cheese, or on a good old piece of buttered toast. For my batch today I used fresh rosemary, sage and lavender. The options are endless and the results are always delicious.

Here we go.

Ingredients & Supplies:

A couple sprigs of rosemary, a few large sage leaves, and about a tablespoon of fresh lavender flowers (off the stem)

A good bottle of honey

A piece of butchers twine or any other wax like string

A small piece of cheesecloth

Small mason jars

Directions:

Tie the rosemary and thyme into two separate bundles using the twine at the bottom of the stems.

For the lavender, (or any other loose herb or flower) create a small pouch with the cheesecloth, filling until nice and compact. Then tie shut making a small baggie.

Place each bundle into a separate jar, then fill with honey.

Seal jars tightly, and place them in a nicely lit window sill for two weeks or so, tasting and removing the herbs when the flavor seems just right.

**Do note that this should last for quite some time as honey is a natural antimicrobial.

Serve and enjoy!
