Madame Babineau’s Lavender Honey

This honey smells so divine. I love adding it to my morning Earl Grey tea. 

24 hour prep time, 15 mins cook time, makes 1 cup

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp lavender blossoms 
  • 1 cup honey

Heat honey until thinned. Stir in lavender. Pour into a container (I used a mason jar) and cover at room temperature for 24 hours. Warm again and strain.
