Today I wanted to share how I use my homegrown lavender plants here at the farmhouse.
Do you grow lavender or are you considering growing a few?
It is way easier than you would think.
One of the questions that I am often asked is: What do I do with the lavender after drying?
Did you know there are lots of different ways to use lavender buds and leaves?
Today I am sharing one of the ways I use my lavender and will be sharing additional ideas over the next few weeks.
But for now, let’s get to my recipe for Lavender Syrup
Lavender buds 1- Tablespoon
Measure out your lavender buds
Add to small cook pan with the water
Add sugar and bring to boil
FULL RECIPE BELOW
After cooked and slightly cooled, pour into a glass container
This recipe makes approximately a 1/2 pint jar
It is easier to pour into the jar if you use a funnel.
- 1 cup of water
- 1 tablespoons freshly dried lavender buds
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- Combine water, sugar, and lavender blossoms in a small saucepan.
- Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves.
- Simmer for 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and let syrup steep, about 30 minutes.
- Pour syrup into a sterilized glass jar through a mesh strainer to remove blossoms; let cool.
There you have it. Easy as can be and so so good in a glass of water or tea. Give it a try, I think you will like it.
