Lavender syrup

Lavender cordial

Lavender syrup is simple syrup made with lavender flowers, giving it a delicate floral flavor. Lavender syrup is naturally straw-yellow or light brown; some manufacturers add purple food coloring or purple-colored botanicals for a more attractive color.

If you have access to fresh or dried lavender, it’s easy to make your own syrup. In a saucepan, add a cup of sugar, a cup of water, and a tablespoon of lavender. You can also toss in a few blueberries for a natural purple color, or other herbs like thyme or rosemary. Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then remove from heat and allow to cool.

Once it’s cool, strain the syrup into a bottle and store in the refrigerator for up to two or three weeks.
