Finally this year I managed to make a flower syrup, a really simple recipe, to make at home. To accompany in our breakfasts or snacks. I used it along with pancakes and Waffles, leaving a really delicious taste.
- 500 g sugar
- 500 ml water
- 40 g dried flowers
- 2 slices lemon
- 2 slices orange
it is a simple recipe to prepare, we used a mixture of flowers and aromatic herbs: Cornflower, Calendula, Melissa, Lemongrass and Sunflower.
In a pot, add the caster sugar, half a cinnamon stick and dried flowers.
Then cut two slices of lemon and orange, adding them to the mixture together with the water.
Cook over a low heat leading to boiling, stirring everything continuously.
Let cook for about 40/50 min.
After cooking time, remove the slices of orange, lemon and vanilla stick.
With a necklace, strain the flower syrup into a bowl.
Pour the flower syrup into airtight glass jars.
In a cool place and protected from light, syrup is stored for 6 months.
Once opened, store the jar of syrup in the fridge.
