Today's recipe isn't so much a "recipe" per se, but it does involve food. And mixing of more than one ingredient. So. Maybe it is a recipe...? Who knows. But, one thing is for sure - it's an easy, doable, all-natural gift that would be perfect to hand out around the holidays.
Be sure of one thing, though - you definitely need to allow quite a bit of time for this infusion to be at its best. The fresh herbs and honey need time to harmonize and blend, so if you're planning to give these as gifts, you'd better get on it now.
This would make an especially lovely gift for any tea-drinkers you have in your life - add this to a cup of black tea, and you've got something special. It's also a little bit of magic when drizzled over hot buttered toast.
What You'll Need:
1. Thorougly wash and then pat dry the herbs you'll be using. Trim the ends.
2. Pack the herbs into a canning jar.
3. Pour the honey over the herbs, filling the jar.
4. After filling the jar, screw on the lid and turn the jar over to ensure that the honey coats all of the herbs and reaches the bottom. Leave for a few miutes and then turn the jar right-side up.
5. Allow the herbs to infuse the honey for several weeks. Store in a cool, dark place. Once a week, turn the jar over to get the honey moving around and leave for several minutes before turning right-side up again.
6. After the honey has infused over several weeks or months, present as a lovely, all-natural gift.
Happy Monday, friends! Enjoy!
