I love honey and I love lavender, so this combo is a match made in heaven. The lavender adds a subtle, yet delicious floral flavor to the honey and you can use it in so many things. It is great in anything you would use regular honey: tea, yogurt, desserts, cocktails, the possibilities are endless. And do yourself a favor, try it on vanilla ice cream. Seriously, just take my word on this one. It’s awesome.
And it couldn’t be any easier…stir, wait, strain, eat…that’s it. The measurements aren’t a science here either so if you want a stronger or more subtle lavender flavor, feel free to adjust.
- 3 oz honey
- 1 tbsp Dried Lavender Flowers
- Add honey and lavender in a glass jar. Stir to combine and cover.
- Let sit for at least a week, stirring every day or two (lavender will float to the top)
- Strain with a fine mesh strainer.
