Ingredients

Honey

This easy recipe works with any honey as long as its flavor matches your taste. Mild and creamy honey such as clover create a less intense syrup in contrast to punchier herbal ones as well as Manuka honey.

Culinary lavender

Make sure you use edible, culinary lavender only for this simple lavender syrup. You can get it at most specialist food retailers.

Highly-fragrant English lavender, also known as Lavandula angustifolia, is best. Hidcote or Munstead are suitable varieties.

(Please note that my photos show French lavender Dentata as props as this was the only lavender available in my garden when creating imagery for this recipe.)

Water

Make sure to use filtered water to avoid any chlorine flavor in your lavender honey syrup.
