Author Notes: The lemon juice reacts with the lavender and makes the syrup turn a light pink.Sadassa_Ulna

Makes one cup syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 lemon
  • 2-3 tablespoons fresh (or dried) lavender buds
  1. In a small non-reactive saucepan bring one cup water and lavender to a boil, add sugar and lower to a simmer.
  2. Peel the lemon with a vegetable peeler and add to the mix. After cooking ten minutes, juice the lemon and add to the mix. The mix should turn a faint pink. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  3. Pour into a glass container; after 2-3 days strain mixture. It will have turned a little more pink. Mix 1-3 tablespoons into a glass of bubbly water and add ice.

I received some lavendar blossoms from my daughter and was wondering what, besides sachets, I could use them for! I am simmering as i write this and am getting calmer every second from the "second hand smoke"!!
