Herb Honey

Thanks to Herb-Recipe E-Group for this Recipe.

1 tablespoon fresh herb
or 1 tsp.. dried herb
1 pint honey

Choose an herb such as thyme, lavender, mint, rosemary or even rose petals. Bruise fresh leaves slightly and place them in the bottom of a small saucepan. Pour room temperature honey into the pan and heat over low heat very slowly. Stir the mixture until the honey is JUST warm, about 2 minutes. Pour the mixture into sterilized jars and seal tightly. Store the jars at room temperature for about one week to blend flavors. Then reward the honey in the same way and strain out the herbs. Recap. Jelly jars work well for this. Tie a ribbon around the neck with an attached tag with suggested uses such as: sweeten tea or punch, use in salad dressings, combine half and half with butter to use as a spread for waffles, pancakes, muffins or bread.
