How to make Bayer Farms Lavender Simple Syrup?

**From Coffee to Cocktails**


From dawn's first light, a cup of delight,

Coffee beans brewed, a morning right.


But as the day unfolds, the sun starts to set,

It's time to switch gears, to something more wet.


Cocktails await, with flavors so bold,

Our super syrups transform, turning stories untold.


So from coffee to cocktails, the journey is grand,

Sip by sip, let's raise a glass, hand in hand.





The Lavender Simple syrup can be made with fresh blossoms or dried buds steeped with sugar and water to create a sweet, aromatic floral syrup. I use it in the delicious lemonades provided during your visits both blueberry and raspberry, and many clients love in their lattes and old fashioned bourbon cocktails.

Moreover, it make it convenient to add lavender flavor to your cookies, scones and breads.





Total Time: 40 mins

Prep Time: 5 mins

Cook Time: 5 mins

Seeping Time: 15-30 (depends on your taste)

Recipe below will yield around 8-12 ounces.

 

Your List of Ingredients

  • 1 cup of water

  • 1 cup of granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon of dried Bayer Farms lavender buds OR 2 tablespoons of fresh blossoms Note: I use a mixture of Folgate and Melissa in most of my syrups.


Step 1: Let’s Get Started


Combine the water and the lavender in a small saucepan over medium-high heat just to steaming then add in your sugar.


Step 2: Just to a boil, simmer and dissolve.


Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute.


Step 3: Steeping brings the flavor


Remove from heat and let syrup steep from anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Taste after 15 and stop when it’s just right. (I normally go around 20-25 as my lavender buds are pure).


Step 4: Pour and Store


Once you've reached your perfect taste of Lavender, pour syrup through a mesh strainer to remove the blossoms or buds; let cool to room temperature.

Pour into a sterilized air tight glass jar.

The syrup will last a month or so unrefrigerated or longer if refrigerated.
