Honey Rosemary Simple Syrup

Honey Rosemary Simple Syrup Recipe

I love coffee!

I probably love coffee a little too much - as we all found out when I detoxed off of it a few months ago.  ;-)

Although black coffee (with cream) is typically my go-to coffee drink, I also LOVE lattes, mochas, americanos...  Pretty much anything made with espresso makes my heart happy.

Since I always am working on ways to eat cleaner/healthier while keeping my grocery bills down, I've been making my own chocolate and caramel for my yummy coffee drinks for a while now.  My homemade syrups may not be the most healthy, but at least they're not full of high fructose corn syrup, food dyes, and other chemicals.

I thought it would be tons of fun to try to make other types of syrups too.

I couldn't believe how simple making simple syrup was!!!

Instructions:

1.  Combine honey and water in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Add the chopped up sprig of rosemary.  Cook until all the honey is dissolved.

2.  Strain out the rosemary pieces and bottle the syrup.

3.  Drink lots of yummy coffee!

  17. Does that work in coffee? Can't imagine it at all.. I could imagine it probably in club soda, or glazing veggies or chicken before roasting it :-) Have a wonderful new week, Susannah!
