Laven­der honey

WILD LAVEN­DER HONEY IS MADE by bees that feast on the pretty pur­ple buds of this ver­sa­tile herb, but if you‘ve got laven­der in the gar­den, you can cre­ate it your­self!

In­gre­di­ents 2 dozen fresh laven­der blos­soms or 1 ta­ble­spoon dried flow­ers 1 cup honey

Stir honey and laven­der to­gether over low heat. Re­move, cover and leave at room tem­per­a­ture for a day. Warm again un­til it is liq­uid enough to pour through a sieve into a jar.
