Lavender Simple Syrup
1/2 teaspoon dried (or fresh) lavender buds
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
Combine the water, sugar and lavender buds in a small pot on the stove top.
Simmer on medium heat for about 10 minutes, or until the sugar has completely dissolved.
Use a fine mesh strainer to remove the buds from the syrup.
This will be slightly thicker and more concentrated than the regular 1 part sugar/1 part water method.
You can keep this syrup at room temperature in aseled container for several weeks.
Use this to sweeten coffee, tea, or other beverages.
