Make Herbal Honey

Post  Josh on 12/9/2012, 11:17 am

I made some herbal honey to share with the members of the herb club that I belong to and I thought I would share the recipe with all of you.

Herbal Honey

Ingr
edients:

1 tablespoon fresh herb


or 1 tsp. dried herb

1 pint honey



Choose an herb such as thyme,
lavender, mint, rosemary or even rose petals.



Bruise fresh leaves slightly and
place them in the bottom of a small saucepan.



Pour room temperature honey into the
pan and heat over low heat very slowly.



Stir the mixture until the honey is
JUST warm, about 2 minutes.



Pour the mixture into sterilized
jars and seal tightly.



Store the jars at room temperature
for about one week to blend flavors.



Then rewarm the honey in the same
way and strain out the herbs.



Recap.

I have a video of me making it.

Thanks everyone. I made mint honey and lemon honey, I liked the lemon honey the best. I don't really like mint very much, so I used apple mint with the honey and it was pretty good, just a mild mint flavor.

Well Haircut time is twice a year...at homecoming and then again at prom...homecoming was yesterday:P
