Hello,

I’m still experimenting with lavender recipes. Being such a versatile herb, it lends itself to so many culinary uses.  Lavender syrup can be used as a base for a number of drinks including cocktails. It can also flavour baked treats.  This is a useful ingredient standby make and like lavender sugar, can be gifted.

  • 250g water
  • 250g caster sugar
  • handful of lavender flowers, including stems

Method

  1. Place the sugar and water in a medium sized saucepan. Place on the hob over a medium heat and simmer until the sugar has dissolved.
  2. Remove from heat and add the lavender flowers. Let the lavender steep for around 30 mins in the syrup.
  3. Strain the syrup, then decant into a sterilised glass bottle.
  4. Store in a cool, dry place – the syrup should keep for at least 4 weeks.
